        Stayed here as part of a tour and it's a nice hotel. It's a little dated but that's Bolivar for you. There are some rooms that are better than others. Our friends got room 701 and it's really nice. The breakfast was average but the wifi has been really good. Location is a couple of blocks away from the main square so it's quite convenient. Would recommend staying here.

        ... usually. Our (very talkative) hostal owner told us that most of the money is earned with drugs, i.e. cocaine. Due to it's location, Santa Cruz is a good spot for producing and distributing cocaine. It has an international airport and is relatively close to the vast and uncontrollable boarders of Argentina and Brasil. The owner also told us that half of his friends work in the drug business, making tons of money but that he decided to stay ...

        Oh Santa Cruz, no you're not that far....

        ... br> Santa Cruz has a nice relaxed feel about it, though the driving in Santa Cruz is somewhat crazy, and dangerous at times, with cars and bikes making a two lane road into a four lane road. The people seemed less engaging than in Brazil and we found it more difficult to communicate in Santa Cruz than in Brazil, despite our pequena (small) efforts to learn a bit of spanish before arriving in the spanish speaking countries!

        Next stop, Sucre, Bolivia!

        ( for $20 you can fill yourself up all night from the dedicated whiskey and ice cooler guy who follows us around ) . Eventually they lead us out of the parade to a grandstand area to enjoy watching from the sidelines over a few beers with our band banging it out beside us, a grandstand band behind us, a grandstand techno blast across the street from us and oh yes, the parade bands ...

        ... and boots would hold to. At the top was a single miner operating a lift where large bags were being hauled up from below. It was dusty. I think climbing back down was even harder than climbing up. Then we had to make our way to another mine. This was done by climbing down to another tunnel and basically crab walking for too long. It was dusty. I felt like I couldn't breathe between the humidity and the mask and the dust. We watched miners run by with carts full of material, carrying bits ...

        Camino del Peregrino, nr.10, Sucre, the Road of the Pilgrim… that’s where “unknowingly” and unwillingly, but happily, I found a resting
        place, in a house less “built up” than “grown out” of the earth, as if
        remembering all its ancestral shapes, colours and textures through the vision
        of its creator, Ryan. Co-incidence? When we consider the meaning of this word
        as “happening together”, then yes, but not ...
