September 3rd - 8th
We took an overnight bus from Sucre to Santa Cruz arrived to a strange phenomia...heat!! It was really hot and sticky..we were quite useless for the first day!! Took a trip to the surrounding area and stayed in a really cool little town called Samaipata..very quiet and relaxed, but loads to do, hikes etc. The landscape had completely changed we went from dust and mud huts to green vegetation and brick houses!! Bolivia really has extremes in it´s society...huge gaps between the rich and poor! We did part of the ´Che Guevara´pilmagrage..visited where he last fought , died and was buried, was really interesting..quite a surreal experience!
Have had a fantastic time in Bolivia, would love to stay on but we´ve already extended our visas once and now Brazil is calling!
