BOLIVIA

After a 20 hours busride from Sao Paulo to Corumba, we crossed the border on twenty seventh of April within the morning. This was actually like stepping from one world into the opposite from one second to the opposite.

We solely spent one afternoon within the border-village Quijarro, the place we in some way managed to look at the Champions-league-final… with some difficulties. Within the night we went on a bumpy train-ride to Santa Cruz. Attention-grabbing , however exhausting. We spent someday and one night time in wet Santa Cruz as a way to go on to 2700m excessive Sucre on Might twenty ninth.

This busride was truly one of many worst we ever had. 12hrs bumpy in a single day in a extremely unhealthy bus plus 4hrs delay made us actually screwed. Nonetheless, afterwards we spent two good days and good within the good metropolis. Sucre is a world heritage metropolis, and the partitions of thou homes within the internal metropolis are saved white on a regular basis.

On Monday June 1st we ascended on to 4100m excessive Potosi in a pleasant and comfy

3hrs busride. The as soon as actually well-known and wealthy silver-mine-city Potosi is reportedly the best metropolis on the earth – relying on the definition of metropolis by its measurement in fact. Because of the altitude we have been a bit drained the subsequent day and – sure, it actually seems like a hangover after a protracted night time 😉

Our subsequent objective would have been the Salt Dessert of Uyuni, however sadly we needed to skip this stunning panorama attributable to a strike with highway blocks on the streets to Uyuni for a number of days. So we went on first to solely to Omaru (hoping the roads have been gonna be open once more) after which on to the capital La Paz.

All in all, with some issues, we had a good time travelling by the primary a part of Bolivia!
