After getting down from Huayna Potosi I had pencilled in some paragliding for the next day. I figured my legs would need a rest and so flying seemed ideal. Adventurous activities are very affordable in Bolivia, and I love how everything can be easily based from La Paz. So bright and early I headed off to the headquarters of AndesXtremo, a small paragliding company run by three brothers.
After more people arrived we headed out to some rural hills just outside of La Paz. We lay in the sun and waited our turn, and before long it was my time to head into the sky. Taking off was not too hard, you pretty much just run as hard as you can and before you know it you are air borne!
Drifting through the sky was peaceful, Mario and I glided around the hills, circling higher in the updrafts. The weather had turned clearer and we got great views of the hills around La Paz. Overall, it was a great way to spend a Sunday!
