Dolazak u Nasu gospu od Mira

La Paz je, kao sto sam vec jednom negde komentarisala, ostavio utisak cudne i ruznjikave prestonice. Guzve, stari autobusi i kamioni koji ostavljaju duge repove dima i smrada, poluzavrsene kuce koje se nizu u visinu obliznjih brda, prenaseljeljenost i manjak urbanog planiranja... Sam centar ima sarma, kolonijalnih crkava i gradjevina, ali grad kao …

Surviving The World´s Most Dangerous Road!

For any of you who have seen the Top Gear Bolivia special, I need not explain this too much.

A 70km stretch of road from La Paz to Coroico. Legendary for the simple fact that the road doesnīt measure more than 3-4m wide in most places, with a sheer 1000m drop. Since the 1990s, this road has become a tourist attraction for those looking …

Laundry´s day out...

It is with GREAT relief that I sit on the Warra Warra overnight train from Oruro ro Tupiza. I hadnīt had a stressy day like that one in ages. A little late departing after yet another breakfast of bread with strawberry jam and off we set. Accompanied by Caitlin and laundry (for a second attempt at getting it washed), we set about getting a ticket …

... up with the faster group to no prevail, with the faster group being predominantly European. The Death Road held its reputation with 3 of our group members falling spectaculary during the descent, thankfully none involving us. After lunch, a swim in the river and a few too many beers for Nikita, a 3 hour bus ride back to La Paz was bearable only for the fact that warm showers awaited us.

The day after death road we had planned to get on a night bus to Sucre, when ...

... city we'd stayed in so far, and since we had ascended over 1,500m from Arequipa the altitude soon caught up with us. Sal was fine, however Mitch was the one to be knocked back a bit with ongoing headaches for several days, particularly at night, as well as huffing and puffing every 10 metres like a pack a day smoker! Due to the altitude sickness we had to push our lake tour back a day but we eventually got out there, visiting the famous Uros Floating Islands ...

    We stayed in Bacoo 2 times during our visit to Bolivia. It has almost everything you need to feel comfortable and to relax after a long and uncomfortable bus trips through and around Bolivia. The only thing lacking is the common kitchen for those who want to cook on their own.

    It is pretty close (10 minutes walk) to La Paz main bus terminal, as well as to the centre with shops and restaurants. Stuff is amazing, especially Isabel who is dedicated to her work and to the guests.

    There is a lovely court yard with the bar and dining room at the centre and different types of rooms around this lovely courtyard. Rooms are all clean, 4-5 common showers with hot water so you need not wait for the cabin however full is the hostel, toilet boxes supplied with soap and toilet paper, all clean and well organized. I would definitely recommend it to my friends and would stay there again.

    Bit tacky, wannabe party hostel

    Room was ok but a bit tacky without a proper lock on the door, and there was a decent bar serving some food with a tatty pool table and a travel agency in the lobby, however everything felt a bit run down and empty.
