This is a trip diary prepared while on a railway safety assignment for CESO Servicios Internacionales in February 2002. It is not the safety report prepared for the Superintendencia de Transportes de Bolivia.
The Witches' Market in La Paz
La Paz is an interesting place to visit in itself and I particularly enjoy the Witches’ Market. However, I was particularly fortunate to travel by railway track car to some out of the way places.
La Paz to Oruro by bus
Oruro to Uyuni by track inspection car
Uyuni to Potosi over the highest railway in the world
Sucre, the carnaval and return to La Paz
Viacha to Comanche on the line towards Arica in Chile
Cruz to Roboré
Roboré to Santa Cruz
Santa Cruz to Abapo and return
