We're with your trip to Bolivia and Chile starting soon and I'm a bit concerned about money. I've just been in to Thomas Cook and have been told they advise US dollar travellers cheques for Bolivia but US dollars cash for Chile. We are doing an add on to Easter Island after Chile and don't want to have to carry large amounts of cash around. Is this true?
I'm also wondering about clothing as we will be in hot and cooler areas but don't want to overload. What do you advise for jumpers and coats?
