Goodbye Sucre – Hello Potosí

2009-12-28_Bolivia_SUCRE-dernier jourSo after such a shock I luckily had a really nice dinner with 2 french travellers: Aline & Alain - travelling for 5 months around South America – I met on my way back from Tarabuco. It was great to be able to exchange our travel impressions and tips !

This morning while having my breakfast in the garden of my nice hostel – Hostelling International Sucre Calle Guillermo Loayza 119 – 200 metres from the bus station, but still quiet on the garden side ; ok 15 min walk from the center… – I met again 2 americains – the one I met at the Jurassic Park. We had a really nice chat before I was getting ready to leave to Potosí.

On my way there I was sitting next to a friendly Bolivien: Adrían, with whom I chat in spanish – yes, yes! – most of the time – 3 hours drive! – and who kindly help me to get to the city centre by public transport ; the way I prefer :)actually at 4060 metres high, I wouldn’t walk up there with my backpack!

All this positive encounter helps me to recover from my little cultural shock :) Now need to get ready for the visit of the mines which would certainly be quite hard too but I guess really interesting…
