“I have never seen such utter disregard for human life”. This was the first thing we read when trying to prepare ourselves for bus rides in Bolivia. That remark was followed by pages of examples of (severe) accidents, speeding or flat out drunk drivers and not to mention the poor state of the busses. Since we didn’t budget on flying our way through Bolivia, we tried to come prepared. Don’t rely on chance or even the lucky charms in the picture to get from A to B.
