I will try to help finish this project, starting by claiming section 3 "Bolivia."
These are always a bit challenging, but I also usually learn quite a lot :)

I'll keep you company and claim the Rome, the lucky section 13. Would it be OK?

Chapter 3, Bolivia is ready for PL.

There are several places where the text is in all caps - I think those may have been picture captions originally? In any case, I read them except for one place where it just didn't make sense. The text is "The faithful, hardworking llamas" and without the picture it's just random text. If you want that text back in or the other captions out, just let me know! Also, the noise volume seems a little high, but I didn't want the distortion that comes from too much tweaking, so your opinion on that front is welcome.

Seciton 13 is ready for PL:

https://librivox.org/uploads/lynnet/mentor2_13_various_128kb.mp3 (51:51)

Same request: the text contains what probably was captions for illustrations, they do sound like headers for sections, and can be easily removed - just need your word and a time index hint.

Thanks!

Thank you.

I tried to remove captions for illustrations, but I am fallible (increasingly so with the passing of years :roll: )
