Travel Blogs from Santa Cruz

Potosi, Sucre y Santa Cruz

A travel blog entry by bignatiev


... can walk up to stall and buy a stick of dynamite for £1,50. Upon arrival at the mine we warily made our way to the entrance, hopping around the areas where the mine had previously caved in, eventually we made it to an ominous door like object that led us into the mountain and into the darkness. We switched on our headlamps and made our way steadily through the mine, following the flow of the deep, muddy water around our feet, the ceiling was constantly changing height - at ...

Cruise through Santa Cruz

A travel blog entry by jdtrip

... about 6pm (this also means it was doubly good we didn't get the other 20 hour bus from Sucre to Santa Cruz). Distressed that we hadn't psyched ourselves up for such a long journey, we panicked, jumped into a taxi to the bus terminal, hopped onto the coach and accepted our fate.

It was 6am and we were at the border! ...

Another eventful bus journey. About an hour into 14 hours of the roughest road Ive ever travelled on(except maybe on a mtn bike) ...

Last Days In The Andes

A travel blog entry by cladd


... the trip so far, not to mention the most pleasant; tree-filled and shady, it was the perfect place to spend hours doing nothing, and we could see why travellers are often enticed to spend longer than they planned here. Problematically, it happened to be a Sunday, so most of the major sites (which are mainly religious buildings) were not open to visitors, but everything was so impressive from the outside that we were content with walking the sunny streets for most of the day. ...
