I have a car Kind of so, let’s just jump to it So we’re not at Pongo yet, but we’re making a quick stop at “La Cumbre” Don’t know if you see it But behind me there are people who are making a thing called “MESA” and it’s like a ritual That normally people from the Aymara culture and Quechua culture and maybe other cultures that I don’t know They makes and so basically it means that they offer stuff, so they have a good luck for the next year and just They are offering like stuff to the mother earth and also the God called “Inti” that is basically the Sun but basically as you can see like around this place is where they Mostly do all those kind of stuff and to be honest. It’s pretty amazing Like I don’t know much about the Aymara culture or the Quechua culture But I would love to learn more about it. This place is amazing and The view is pretty cool Like we are I think one more hour an hour and a half away from Pongo from our final destination but this place called “La Cumbre” that is halfway between La Paz City and Pongo it’s amazing.

I mean look at this thing it is it’s really cool, but dangerous, but cool Alright guys, we finally made it We’re here in the small town called Pongo If you can see, it’s only that like it’s really really small. But this small town is located Two hours over from La Paz the city basically we’re in the countryside and like I told you before This is the place where you can find a lot of really tasteful Fish call a trout trout. I don’t remember the name of the fish But basically that is a place like people around this area.
