It has been quite a journey to get to this point, but thank God the time’s getting closer! One of my goals during medical school was to go on an international rotation. For about a year, I have been planning and preparing to go to Angola, Africa. Through God’s wise decisions and will, this trip happened instead! I trust that the experiences I will gain here in Bolivia will be well worth the change =).
At the time of my writing this, it is 3 weeks before my departure. Can you tell I’m excited?! I’ve never written a blog before so pardon its amateurish nature both now and forevermore. Amen.
A little bit about Bolivia- it is located in South America, ‘landlocked’ between Peru, Chile, Argentina, Paraguay, and Brazil. To its west is the breathtaking Andes Mountains and to the east is the incredible Amazon rainforest, thus the title of this blog! La Paz (“the Peace”) is the capital of Bolivia where I will be spending the majority of my visit.
