After over a month and a half together, the time had finally come to split up. Alex and Stephen would go to Cochabamba, Bolivia, to work in a hostel in exchange for a free stay there, while Max would stay in La Paz and find some solo adventures to pursue.
Alex and Stephen, planning on traveling for longer than Max, wanted to work at a hostel both for the experience of it and to make their money and time on the road last longer. Through an increasingly popular website called WorkAway, they found what sounded like a cool hostel in Cochabamba, a city they’d been told would make for a good ‘immersion in Bolivian culture.’
After a nice night out eating chicken burgers at a local bakery and drinking Chuflay with German girls at an underground bar that felt like an medieval tavern, we said our goodbyes and the next morning, Alex and Stephen hit the road.
