Bolivia was undoubtedly the cheapest country I had been in in South America. Unfortunately the expenses below don’t reflect that but there were extenuating circumstances. Staying at a party hostel was a necessity. I needed the diversion and a place to recharge and connect with people. I also stayed in an AirBnb to try to get focused on work, and cooked some lavish home-style meals to try to get a semblance of normalcy back. I also began to feel the pressure of time as my goals to be in a certain city by a certain time were weighing on me, thus I took a flight to save time. Add up a tour to Uyuni and much higher than expected internet costs and Bolivia ended up being much more expensive than planned, but this was a reflection on me and my state of mind, not on the country. In any case, this is what it all looked like.
