@yugenheim:
If you ever go to Bolivia make sure to watch the Cholitas. The event is held in a small town outside of La Paz each sunday. Watching these women in their traditional skirts bashing each other heads while the whole room is cheering for them is an experience you won’t find anywhere. This form of professional wrestling - Lucha Libre - started out in Mexico and are now spread out in other different spanish-speaking countries. In Bolivia the Lucha Libre has developed to a more female-dominant event where the Cholitas are outshining their fellow male-wrestlers.

Death Road, Bolivia
&#8220;Mountain biking enthusiasts have made it a favourite destination for downhill biking since there is a 64-kilometre (40 mi) stretch of continuous downhill riding with only one short uphill section. There are now many tour operators catering to this activity, providing information, guides, transport, and equipment.
Nevertheless, the Yungas Road remains dangerous. At least 18 cyclists have died on the ride since 1998.&#8221; (Wikipedia)

Madidi National Park, La Paz/Bolivia

Madidi (Spanish pronunciation: [maˈðiði]) is a national park in the upper Amazon river basin located in the Northwest region of the Department of La Paz.

Established in 1995, Madidi is part of one of the largest protected areas in the world.

Ranging from the glacier-covered peaks of the high Andes Mountains to the tropical rainforests of the Tuichi River, Madidi and its neighbors are recognized as one of the planet’s most biologically diverse regions. In particular, Madidi protects parts of the Bolivian Yungas and Bolivian montane dry forests ecoregions.

The local people who have migrated here from the Andean highlands speak the Quechua language.” (Wikipedia)

Salar de Uyuni, Potosi/Bolivia

The town lies between the mountains and the tropics. It has a large vegetation, mostly eucalyptus.” (Wikipiedia)
