Shifting Gears


As my two faithful readers will no doubt have noticed, it's been quiet here on WayWorded for a couple weeks. The main reason is that I've recently directed the bulk of my writing efforts elsewhere, having been given co-editorship of Matador Trips, one of the sites in the up-and-coming Matador Network of travel blogs.

I couldn't be more excited about the new opportunity. For an official introduction to this and other changes at Matador, check out Trips 2.0: For Trippers, By Trippers.

While my position will likely mean fewer WayWorded posts in the future, I certainly plan to keep this blog updated with my adventures from South America. Just this afternoon, I'm heading out to rural Oruro, in the far west of Bolivia, to undertake a volunteer project with local green-energy developer Energética. Then, if all goes to plan, it's off to the southwestern corner of the country for a 5-day tour of the salt flats. Rest assured you'll be reading all about it when I return.

Happy trails,

- Hal

It really is amazing how far out you can zoom Google Earth and still see the salt flats! Can hardly wait to see your pix.
