Mark Berman, South America backpacker for over 12yrs!
The Death Train (Ferroviaria Oriental) was due to leave Santa Cruz mid-afternoon and would take about 15hrs through the night and arrive at the border in Quijarro first thing in the morning, it cost between $15-20USD. The journey was quite comfortable and fun, the seats were not bad and there was food onsale on the train, some nice little chicken and rice meals for about $20 Bolivianos. But better still was the food that the local children brought onboard to sell to the passengers when the train stopped at various places along the way. Along the journey Mexican music tv was playing, it was actually quite good. The train arrived in the morning and now we were at the border, Frontera Bolivia - Brasil. Migration control is just a short distance away. On the last leg of the train journey there were a few tour operators asking me to do tours with them. I told them that I would not make a decision about it after all night on the infamous Death Train and without a decent sleep. Immigration control was straightforward and my yellow fever certificate from Santa Cruz was not questioned. I took a taxi into Corumba.
