Today we ventured to the outskirts of La Paz to visit El Valle de la Luna (Moon Valley in English) to hike and film some interviews. El Valle de la Luna is an extraordinary area where the mountain has eroded over time and formed various sorts of “stalagmites” made of clay. They range from only a few feet high to the size of a small house and we hiked all through the natural reserve of these fascinating formations. The area is dry and desert-like and must be the closest experience one can have to walking on the moon. We enjoyed seeing El Valle de la Luna in person and we were fortunate enough to use it as the background for a number of interviews to highlight some of our key learnings from the past few days. Our schedule has been packed with meetings and information overload but we’ve been so appreciative of how generous and helpful every Bolivian person we’ve encountered has been. They have overwhelmed us with their generosity, willingness to connect us with the right people and offer support in every way.
