Bolivia – 111th Country. To see where I have been so far, check out my map as I count down the final 93 countries on the road to all 193 UN countries. Bolivia is my 111th country.
Bolivia has been on my bucket list for a long time. Bolivia is one of two landlocked countries in South America. Bolivia was part of the Inca Empire, and then a colony of Spain. It gained its independence in 1825. Today, it is the Plurinational State of Bolivia with a very diverse 11 million people with many indigenous people.
I spent a week and a half exploring the country with my efforts focused in three areas. First was Lake Titicaca one of the largest lakes in South America and one of the world’s highest. Sandwiched in the middle was La Paz, the gritty and fascinating capital. And finally, Salar de Uyuni the largest salt lake in the world, a beautiful expanse of whiteness, scintillating flamingoes, and spectacular nature.
