    RTW Logo Aparna’s top 5 travel books #2 Bolivia: Marching Powder by Rusty Young
    Based in La Paz, Bolivia this is a story of the infamous San Pedro prison. After meeting a convicted inmate and drug trafficker from England who does “tours” inside the prison, Rusty develops a friendship with him and actually lives there for 3 months to record his experiences. Unlike any other in the world, it is a prison where inmates buy their cells, shop at stores and eat at restaurants; by day, children of prisoners play in the same courtyards as criminals and by night, it is home to one of Bolivia‚Äôs biggest cocaine laboratories. It shows the fascinating contrast of how dark corruption can be and how much compassion the human soul is capable of.
