Places to see in Bolivia – I was watching the Bloomberg show today, and they started talking about a new restaurant opening up in Bolivia called Gustu, that is ran in collaboration with the non profit organization started by Claus Meyer called the Melting Pot Foundation. Apparently Claus Meyer is well known for his other restaurant Noma, which has previously been ranked as the best restaurant in the world in 2010 and 2011. Anyways, after hearing about Gustu and realizing that no matter how good the eating is, there’s no way I’m going to travel half away around the world just for some food… I need an ulterior motive to go that far. Well I think I found my motivation. I ran across a blog by Jayson Simon-Jones who is a guide right here in my own backyard of Crested Butte Colorado. After looking at the pictures of a recent trip to Bolivia, I think I’m sold. You can see his blog here – http://www.cbguidesblog.com If anything, I think I’ll definitely have to add the Salt Flats called Salar de Uyuni to my bucket list. On top of all that, as if I didn’t need any more of an incentive, knowing that Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid went there while trying to avoid the law, and that Che Guevara made his last stand in Bolivia as-well  just kind of adds fuel to the flames, so to speak of wanting to learn more about Bolivia, its culture and history.
