Bolivia Update: We made it back to Santa Cruz!

Update from Dave:

We all made it back to Santa Cruz in one piece. We left right after the seminar -- well, right after lunch.  Mary wouldn't hear of us starting a trip without eating ... after the World Cup Soccer Games was over.  After all, there are priorities, I was told.

The subsequent earthquake did come, but not until 1:20 pm, an hour and 20 minutes after they thought it would happen, but it was smaller. We got about 50 minutes into our drive when we had to stop.

We waited over two hours as they cleared most of the slide except the 3 biggest boulders; we had to drive around them.
