Potpourri 2

There’s so much to share! Enjoy 🙂

Dr. Uribe- she gave us our weekly lectures. She does great things for the adolescents she works with, especially with teen girls. More on that in the next blog.

This is a unique design on a side street we visited

image

I loved this street- it’s so quaint

This pic is dark, but do you notice anything interesting about this clock?

This protest had something to do with transportation.

My Spanish teacher Jheny! She’s great and she showed us around town several times. She even set everything up for our trip to Salar de Uyuni! The perks of having a tour guide as a teacher 🙂

This is a small model of the monoliths of Tiwanaku. Erica and I didn’t get to go, but Jheny showed us this replica in downtown La Paz.

This stone is called the ‘Bolivianita’. It’s a semi- precious stone only found in Bolivia. It has an interesting story behind it about why it has 2 colors 🙂

Seeing him play the violin took me down memory lane of when I used to play.

I put this on my previous blog- this is a cholet, the big, colorful and shiny buildings of the cholitas of high standing.

image

This is inside one of the cholets. It’s so extravagant! There are lots of colors and lights, like Vegas or a cruise ship!

My host family! Jenny took good care of us. She always told us to be careful when we went out and she even held my hand when we crossed the street, much like what my mom would do lol. Her husband Phil told us a lot about Bolivia. Their daughter Valorie is very creative and talented 🙂
