Bolivia cont.

December 10, 2008  •  Leave a Comment
Prior to Cordillera Real I had parted ways with Andre. We had fairly similar plans for the rest of Bolivia, but he has to catch a flight in December so had to rush through. But we traveled together for over 3 weeks and had a great time so I don't mind spending some time alone again. And on December 19th I will be meeting Hermod in Santiago the Chile and travel with him for 3 weeks.Returning to La Paz after the climb I then took a bike ride to Coroico, down what's known as the "The Worlds Most Dangerous Road". A bit overhyped if you ask me. It was a nice enough day, but certainly not the adrenaline highlight of the trip. But a very positive surprise was the La Sende Verde animal refuge where the tour company ended the trip. The above picture was taken there.After now more than two months of travel I found it was time for a vacation from the vacation so had planned to stay 2-3 days in Coroico, a very relaxed place with beautiful views. But the day after I arrived a group of eight 20-year old Bolivians checked in for a long weekend of partying so I argued with the owner to let me leave that day even though it was well pas check-out time. Jumped on a bus to La Paz and then directly on a 12-hour night bus to Sucre.I have spent a full 3 days in Sucre, not doing much else than processing my pictures from the last two weeks, lots of reading and random Internet browsing. Stayed at a very nice $28/night hotel and thoroughly enjoyed the luxury (that's almost 10x more than I paid in La Paz...)Now off to Potosi and then Salar de Uyuni before I cross into Chile and San Pedro de Atacama around the 14th. I expect to be moving quickly from one spot to another the next 10 days or so, so it might be a while till the next update.
