Caught the bus to La Paz. Not the bus or bus company we were meant to be with, free seating, 1 toilet stop, the driver tells me its too difficult to stop at the bus terminal because its on the left as pretty much the entire bus abuses him in Spanish - welcome to travel Bolivian style. Luckily we got dropped off on Calle Llampu which has loads of hostels, hotels and tour operators. We found Kanoo tours who have a great online presence and super-helpful office staff.
After a quick taxi to the TAM airlines office (with kids and bags dumped in the Kanoo office) we organise vouchers, followed by a great meal, comfy bed and slow but consistent wi-fi at Hotel Rosario.
This blog is for family and friends to keep up with our travels (read as: let us brag and let dad know I'm not recklessly endangering his grandchildren) and for those researching their own trip as I know other's experiences were invaluable in my planning.
