just like the WWE or WWF wrestling

In Bolivia, they have wrestling just like they do in the states.
Kathe and I had to go check it out.
It was actually very entertaining.
They really knew how to get the crowd involved

I have no idea
But here in Argentina, I am adding to that amount quickly.
I found a wine shop yesterday and bought 4 bottles. I need to do some fancy packing to fit them in to my bags today.
I will see you soon as I pass thru your city

Laguan Colorada is up about 14,000 feet.
That is about the height of the tallest mountains in Colorado
