Hangout
20 marzo, Travel in Bolivia (Viajes en Bolivia) Hangout (Blog)
Great to talk with Alex Villca Limaco about biodiversity conservation, indigenous tourism and clothing tips for visitors to Bolivia. Alex and I first met via the Indigenous Tourism and Biodiversity Website Award in 2009-2010 and we met up again at the COP11 in Hyderabad, India. Alex works promoting responsible travel in one of the world’s great biodiversity hotspots, the Madidi National Park. Next week he’s presenting a talk on redes sociales (the social web) at FIT Bolivia. There’s no better way to learn how this works than by putting this into practice, which prompted this candid conversation on the first day of spring (northern hemisphere) and first day of fall (southern hemisphere).

Celebrations
