Bought a beautiful baby alpaca shawl here and very much enjoyed a conversation with the owner. He's well-informed about Bolivian travel destinations and happy to share!

It seems there's almost nothing Marco doesn't know about this awesome country, be it tours, customs, habits and culture, sights, accommodation, restaurants,... More
