October 2018: Bolivia On October 9, 1967, Che Guevara was executed by the Bolivian Military after waging a guerrilla campaign in the country. His body was taken to the town of Valle Grande, where it was housed in the local hospital before being buried in an unmarked grave. The morgue where his body was stored has since become a place of pilgrimage and curiosity. On the anniversary of his death, a friend and I visited the hospital, where we were snuck in by a local who may or may not have actually worked there and shown to the place where the Marxist Revolutionary’s body was stored. A week or so later, I was rummaging through the collections of a library in Sucre when I came across old newspapers reporting on the conflict. The headline reads: ‘El Che Guevara is very sick, declares newly captured guerrilla.” The retreat near the town of Samaipata where I participated in an Ayahuasca Ceremony – full post on this coming soon. The main plaza of Samaipata. (Read about the town here) Sucre – Bolivia’s capital. The day I died and went to heaven. Street art in Sucre Recoleta, Sucre Plaza Murillo in La Paz, the seat of the country’s national government At 3640 metres, it’s one of the highest major cities in the world. The city has a sprawling network of cable-cars to help the citizens traverse the heights. A view of La Paz from the cable-car. Young Bolivian men, in particular, seem to like North American culture and fashion. It is the older women of the country who still champion traditional dress and customs. This market street – like the rest of the city – was as silent as the grave on November 2nd – Dia del Muerte. Valle de la Luna, outside La Paz On my final day in the city, I detoured through the general cemetery, and stumbled across some of the most amazing art painted on the sides of the longhouses of the dead. Lake Titicaca – the highest commercially navigable body of water in the world. The Basilica of Our Lady of Copacabana, on the shores of Lake Titicaca.
