Carretera de la Muerte – Bolivia’s “Road of Death”

Posted by on May 16, 2010 in Bolivia, Motorcycle Vagabonding, South America | Comments Off on Carretera de la Muerte – Bolivia’s “Road of Death”

Well the next day I got even luckier: another friend of Eric’s had passed by the hotel just as I was coming back from Copacabana all exhilarate form my ride, and we got to talking. I told him I was heading to the “Road of Death”…Luis took the day off work and decided to ride with me. His brother also joined us, and the three of us had a blast riding together. Several tours gather here at the top of this pass to ride the tarmac to where the “Road of Death” begins. Here’s one such group getting started. Yup! There’s our road… My tourguide, Luis: A nondescript right turn gets us onto the famous “Road of Death”. while more of a tourist attraction now rather than a truly harrowing road (trucks not take the new, asphalted road).

Copacabana

So 10 days of being sick in La Paz gave my hand a proper amount of time to heal, and so I looked forward with relish my first day back in the saddle. I felt like I had “wasted” time, an so now was not going to do a grand tour of Bolivia as planned. Instead the hotel fellows at the hotel recommended a coupe of day tours to get into the wing of  things, and I easily agreed since the hotel was comfortable and I had basically been adopted by them.  They had their maid make me “clean” food, and I’d go up to their apartment at  night and eat meals with them, or we’d sit for long hours in the lobby and chat and drink mate (tea) together. Here I am leaving La Paz and heading North...

April 12, 2010 Well, leaving Peru was a hassle for me. There were several steps involving multiple offices, and on top of it a guy at the gate wanted to charge me 5 soles to cross  but I had just spent ALL my last cents getting gas before the border o I could use up my Peruvian money. To top it off, he only had a 50 cent receipt and that’s when I told him I refused to pay him 5 soles if the receipt was for 50 sole-cents. I just drove around him and went to the Bolivian side. I got to the Bolivian Aduana and figured out why everyone was  telling me my friend was just there…turns out that I missed the turnoff for Copacabana and I was now headed towards La Paz. Ugh. Justin was just...
