Things I Miss About America

La Paz, Bolivia edition. Things, not people.

Clean air.

Working in silence.

Clean water.

Feeling warm inside of a building.

Hot showers (not lukewarm).

The gym.

Car alarms as a rarity, not a constant anthem.

Reliable internet in multiple places - not just one spot in the city.

Raw vegetables that won't give me food poisoning.

Flushable toilet paper.

Queen-sized beds.

My Jetta's heated seats and sound system.

Beyu's chai hot toddies.

Almond milk.
