    Hostal Carmen is more like a hotel and it was a fabulous place to stay. I got my own room with a private bathroom for Bs100, and I probably could have bargained to pay less. The hostel was clean and very welcoming. Breakfast was included and was buffet style with bread, fruit and cereal. I definitely recommend this place to anyone.

    We were thrilled to find this. The price matched our budget and we got a private room and bathroom. The breakfast was a nice change from the usual bread and butter.

    ... awhile ago, meatballs on chips, yeah more chips. When we got back everyone was tired and not really up for an early morning, so the wine tour was off unless we could find an afternoon tour. Today we woke late and had a long breakfast before checking out and heading into town to find out more about the wine tours. We found a really helpful lady at another tourist information office on the main square who spoke a little English and put us on the right track. All we had to do ...

    ... but quite sweet. Not sure I will be drinking a lot of Bolivian wines while I'm here. Then we went onto a ravine, where you could see the split in the side caused by an earthquake, making a space for a river to flow between. The last winery was the oldest and the wines were the worst. They were either sickly sweet or disgustingly vinegary. Not my fancy at all but the building wax pretty. A really old mud brick house that had been standing for a really long time, complete with open fire ...

    ... Still, we had now arrived in Tarija! We had heard varying things about Bolivia, some quite off-putting, so we weren't sure what to expect. Tarija turned out to be a quiet little town that prides itself on its steak and wine. However, it also sees itself as belonging to Argentina so we got the feeling that we maybe weren't seeing the real Bolivia just yet. We spent the next day unsuccessfully trying to find a tour agency so that we could book our salt flats tour, however the ...

    ... other cars qued up behind us too. After about an hour or so of sitting around the drivers gave up and were starting to turn the bus around when we saw other people on the other side of the landslide. It turns out there was a bus on the other side of the landslide from the same company we were with.

    So... ALL we had to do was get our bags out of the bus, climb over the rubble on the cliff side, and swap busses with ...

    ... industrial' in the heart of El Valle de la Concepcion, home to the world's highest wines and singani (the distilled grape spirit). We were welcomed into 'Campos de Solana,' one of the major Bolivian wineries whose bottles we find in the supermarket in Sucre. Once again no typical wine tasting experience was available - if you wanted to taste, you had to buy the bottle! However, we were given wine glasses and enjoyed the ...
