DAYS 1 to 4 – Leaving the US and immersing into Bolivia

DAYS 1 to 4 – Leaving the US and immersing into Bolivia

Leaving for Bolivia before the academic semester ends and while KUSIKUY holiday is selling strong, means that Bolivia has been lived with one foot in the still in the US. While visting quinoa processing plants and seeing radical new agriculture projects (postings coming soon about this), I have also been attending to student grades and assignments, KUSIKUY orders and job searches for next semester. The days have passed fast!

Rumor has it that 50% of he quinoa crop has been lost to drought this year and a special meeting is being held by the mayor in Oruro to discuss this, this afternoon.  Saturday we’ll back out with the producers hearing and seeing first hand the results of the crash of the quinoa boom, climate change.

Meanwhile – here’s a photo shout-out to the family and friends who have made these four days so easy!
