The Worlds Most Dangerous Road (or Not!)

Friday 16th December

Today we decided to ride the ‘Bolivia’s Death Road’ made famous by a ‘Top Gear’ special a couple of years  ago, we set off about 7am but after 2 hours we had still not found our way out of La Paz (in some situations Sat Navs are not a great help). Having also hired 2 taxis we finally managed to get on the right track but as we climbed to 15,000ft we encountered fog & hail, with time running out we had to abandoned the trip & returned to our Hotel somewhat disappointed.

A Library picture of the road we intended to ride!! (personally I think riding in La Paz is more dangerous).
