    I wasn't going to write a post about Santa Cruz, as we were only going to spend one night there, but then we got to our hostel and met their two pet toucans, and
    it would be a massive shame if they didn't get an inclusion somewhere in our blog!

    What we did

    Mostly I lazed about in a hammock reading and watching the fascninating and beautiful toucans, whilst Megan sat in an internet cafe and applied for some ...

    ... bus ride and a quick change into overalls, helmets etc. we looked like authentic miners.. all we needed were pickaxes! Our first stop was the miners market where we could buy some gifts for the miners and some treats for ourselves, this included bags of Coca leaves, soft drinks, cigarettes (also made of coca leaves), a 96% bottle of alcahol.. which despite our protests we were forced to try, and finally, of course, dynamite.

Called the Pantanal region, most of it lies in Brazil, where we were headed next.

    Once we bought our overnight bus ticket to the Bolivia/Brazil ...

    ... someone as I no one arrived last time in time for me to train them. I also started calculating whether this meant a few extra days in quarantine in the end.... Unfortunately the training didnt go smoothly as whilst Andi and Tigre seemed to like each other Andi kept developing allergy symptoms from the mosquito bites and we ended up going to the hospital twice.

    Up promptly this morning after a good night's sleep (despite the many mosquito bites I then found), met by a lovely breakfast of scrambled eggs at the hostel. We then took a cab Santa Cruz zoo where we had a wander around for about an hour. The entrance fee was only 10 bolivianos (less than £1) so we figured it was a pretty good price. It didn't take us too long to wander round and in the end we realised why it ...
