Since we landed in South America, we haven’t stop…
I can see all of you thinking : « These guys are off for one year, and they still manage to complain about something… Ah these french people…. Another Cliché… Maybe France is not the country where its inhabitants are the happiest of the world according to the latest ranking done by “The Better Life Index”. But don’t worry, we are happy and aware of the chance we do have.
Although, if I ask you to keep visiting on a row Iguazu falls, long hours of bus, cities and village sighting, museums visit without a break in a few weeks while trying to satisfy, you, insatiable reader, write the text, sort out the pictures, make the short movies (if the videos are worth it) and finally prepare the next destination (which means at least know what is there to be seen, and what there to be done)…
It is almost requiring as many hours as a normal working week. So that’s it. Where is the dominical rest ? 11 months to travel is finally a bit short to see everything, even a little part of it.
So, here we go in Sucre, a very cute city of Bolivia. As the former capital (although the judicial power is still in Sucre), the main activity is to sightseeing the colonial architecture. But don’t forget his local market (quite cheap), the little village around, its Parrillas (sort of local steak house), its both modern and retro atmosphère, and finally traditionnal and busy people. You get to see everything.
So in a few words : A must go and stop for a few days.
There, we find a quite cheap hostel, well located just facing the local market which was good to feed us. We could find fresh fruit juice, fresh vegetables and fruits, meat, empanadas, bread, etc…
In the hostel, we had the rooftop bedroom. A lot of sun, an average wifi connection (but enough to browse the internet), perfect for a good rest.
And suddenly, we got it !!!
A huge feeling of laziness. We didn’t see it coming.
I think we spent more time in our rooftop than exploring the city. Shame, would you think ?
Maybe, but this is one of the good point of travelling for more than just a month…. You don’t book anything, no planning, we can stay (almost) as long as you want, or can leave earlier. Finally, you can build a tailored by you expérience following your mood and desire. What’s else ? A Nespresso with George ? (By the way, it has been a long time..)
Not to mention, that I use a lot of this time to update your favourite travel blog.-:)
Below are some photos of Sucre still with the team A team : Four girls (Caro, Naoimh, Lea and Nadine) and myself.
That’s it for Sucre, a must go (or must stop) city when you cross Bolivia.
Ah, I just forgot to mention that we went to one of these villages called
Tarabuco to visit (the morning is enough) the traditionnal maket (half of it is really just for tourist). If you go there, be careful when you buy alpaca or lama wool clothes. Some of them are quite of bad quality. Ask advise before
Blog you soon from the capital,
