Hey,

Just got back from Bolivia and Peru. I've been traveling for years, but this is the first time that I was able to give as well as receive from a trip. Anyway, here are the results from Operation Bolivia. Check out: My Webpage


Also, if anyone is heading to Bolivia and Peru, and has any questions, I might be of some help.

Rich

Hi,

Just an aside but I am in the process of planning a trip to Peru and Bolivia in 2007 - never before had I planned to go to South America but one day, I was bored at work, and I started going through all the old posts on this site (I was researching for my trip to Europe) and I came across WWM's photos of Peru. From that moment on, I have had my heart set on going.

This website has me addicted to everything in the world I can see now.

PLEASE POST AS MANY PHOTOS ON THIS SITE - IT GETS ME THROUGH A BORING WORKING DAY!!!

CHEERS.

Wow! I've read all your trip and I've seen all of the pictures and all I can say is WOW!

That is the biggest act of kindness I've seen in such a long time. The dedication and the generosity is amazing... Seeing all those pictures actually brought tears to my eyes... the things we take for granted and to someone else could mean the world.

I know you went with donations and everything, but sometimes the donation of TIME is the most important thing, You guys took it in your own hands to help, and the results were amazing.

Such an inspiration! Thanks for making the world (specially to these children) a better place!
