Jil from Germany (Pre-Medical Student):

My time in La Paz is now coming to an end, and it’s unbelievable how many things I experienced during my stay here. I immediately felt very comfortable at my host family and we did lots activities and excursions together in La Paz and the surrounding area.

Also the time in the hospital was an unforgettable experience. Right from the beginning I felt part of the team and despite my basic Spanish skills, none of my questions remained unanswered.

During the weekends I usually did tips and excursions to Coroico or to Lake Titicaca. Bolivia has so much more to offer than one can experience in just one month.

Thanks to everyone who made this trip possible and made my time here so special.

Best regards,

Jil, Germany
