Bolivia, In the footsteps of Che Guevara

To the south of Bolivia, between the district of Cochabamba and Santa Cruz de la Sierra, we followed the steps of the Cuban guerrilla Ernesto "Che" Guevara, who came to die in this land the 9th of October of 1967 in his last guerrilla adventure. It's possible to go to the places where he spent his last days, to talk with the people who saw him, like the dwarf Virgilia Cabrita, the schoolteacher in La Higuera or the nurse who embalmed his corpse; to cross the ravine where he was seized and go up to the school of La Higuera where he was murdered, or to visit the Vallegrande hospital laundry where his corpse was shown. Che is still a living memory among the inhabitants of Vallegrande and the mountains that surround it.
