La Paz ~ Takesi-trail

Because of rain and not so good positions of the tents, some wake in a wet sleeping bag. But that is part of camping, isn't it? After breakfast (with eggs: who takes eggs onbt such a trip) we go direction Yungas. The weather is against us: fog limits the visibility, and from time to time there is also some rain.
The path itself is rather poor, and trashed with a lot of candy papers. In four hours I collect 2 kilograms of waist. Némé collects the same amount on one 'camping place'. But at the end garbage is on the winning hand. Hope they can do something about this in the future and maybe organize a 'cleaning walk'.
We picnic at near a small settlement: flesh + vegetables. And then we walk a couple of hours to reach a (man made) canal branch. It is even possible sleep inside a building, although there are no windows, but it is drier if it would poor again.
Tonight we eat soup, breaded chicken + carrots + rise.
