    Some excellent narrative (and even better photos!)
    A worthy read for anyone considering visiting Bolivia.

    Cheers Willy, very kind words. I notice that you are part of a organisation that organises volunteers in Bolivia – I hope everything is going well for you.

    – This is getting a bit frhuter subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has frhuter flair, along with some cool features similar ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on individual of those will center on that item, plus another set of ab neighbors bb will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or viewers. Speaking of people, the Zune ab Social bb is in addition grand fun, letting you find others with shared tastes in addition to becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can avoid the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.November 5, 2012 9:33 am
