Lame title, I know, but I’m off to Bolivia tomorrow morning to visit Mr. Bookdwarf’s brother in La Paz. I’m not sure about our itinerary. I’m more worried about the altitude sickness (less worried about random diseases because the thorough nurse at the doctor’s office gave me 3 shots plus malaria medication). I also hope I get to pet some alpaca, like the cute ones below:
I’m bringing along plenty of good reading material: New England White by Stephen Carter, Bloodletting and Miraculous Cures by Vincent Lam, Trail of Crumbs by Kim Sunee, and possibly Denis Johnson’s new book Tree of Smoke, if I can convince Mr. Bookdwarf to carry it. Wish me luck!
