Hitchhiking to Bolivia (with Collin Stewart)

We’ve been enjoying updates from 2010 English alum Collin Stewart’s Hitchhiking to Bolivia blog.  The title isn’t a metaphor.

A sample:

A great hunk of rusting grey and spluttering metal was already swaying away from its stop.  A goat was standing on top of it, tethered to the rack, and would crash hard onto its side with every slightest bump.  I sprinted up the road yelling and the van put on its brakes.  The goat did a faceplant into the roof.  I came around the van to the side with the sliding doors to see about 40 people and about 80 eyes, all fixed on me from inside this 16 passenger van.  I was hustled inside, crouched double and facing everyone, with the gear shift in a precarious position between my legs.

Go take a look.
