        ... t very nice. And I had a little fit about the lack of internet connection (after they sell you the room assuring you it functions!). We only stayed there one night and the next day we found a really sweet little hotel called Pachamama that for only 10 BOV more we had much more comfortable beds, a private bathroom and working internet! We stayed there for 3 nights. Sucre is an interesting town. It's very beautiful. It's also known as the 'white city' and it's historical centre is ...

        I pretty much went to bed after checking in. Talking to a girl from New York and found out we're traveling the same route until Uyuni.

        obvious affluence as seen in the rich housing and the size of the city which we
        found out was the largest in Bolivia. We walked up to the top of the cathedral
        near the main plaza for views over the city. The city because of its location
        is very green ...

        Santa Cruz - not quite what we expected

Despite this, Santa Cruz turned out to be a lovely city, although without a huge amount to see or do.

        Our first day in the city happens to be a Sunday, and as a result absolutely everything is closed. This forces us ...

        ... and the occasional dog, pig or chicken wander by. A white jeep then pulled into the layby and to our relief was labelled "Policia Bolivia". Hurrah! The police had woken up and finally come to help us! The policeman stepped out of the jeep and talked sternly to the bus conductors. They huddled under a tree and there was a flurry of activity as mobile phones were pulled out and phone calls were made in hushed voices. The policeman then drove away, leaving ...
