#itchyboots motorcycles through all of Bolivia, a country of immense mineral wealth

March 9, 2023

As I invested in New Pacific Metals (NEWP)(, a Canadian mining company developing three gold and silver projects in Bolivia, I realized I knew so little about the country. Now I have discovered a wonderful youtube series from #itchyboots that is insanely popular with 1.6 million subscribers.

As I began to watch, I quickly realized this was probably the most binge-worthy TV in my life. I watch this woman’s motorcycle travels through many countries. I am in awe every episode, repeating the word “amazing.”

#itchyboots is now on Season 7. Season 2 episodes 56 through 69 show her travels through Bolivia in February-March 2020 until Covid hit.

Enjoy. But do not miss Episode 60 if you want to watch her enter the world-famous Cerro Rico mine, where it is believed that hundreds of thousands of Incan miners died.
