The Death Roads of Bolivia

Bolivia Roads are something to behold, Tourists come and do the death road but that is nothing when you are on the front of a coach watching buses and heavy duty trucks take on each other particularly on curves down death defying hills.

Recently we took the back roads of Bolivia heading to the City of Sucre and going down unpaved roads on one car lane and playing chicken with buses coming at you. Is an experience you won’t forget in a hurry.

If anyone of my readers ever seen the documentaries on National Geographic or something like that is more terryfing up close and personal…

My photos of today, yes you guess it…..

The back road or secondary highway is still a dirt road! after I took the picture is straight down!

At the bottom of the Hill you see motorcyle riders having to walk with the Bikes!
