Cruise through Santa Cruz

A travel blog entry by jdtrip

... huge downpour and the streets were flooded almost instantly so we took refuge in the Cathedral and waited for it to die down... for two hours. Still, it killed some time and was welcomingly relaxing.

In the evening, while passing the time by indulging in a few beers, it occurred to us that the overnight bus couldn't be 9pm to 6am the next day since, according to the Lonely Planet, it was meant to be about 20 hours long, so it would probably get to the ...

Through Hell to a Holy Place

... a Bolivia" (said no sign anywhere)

I hazily try to nod off again but the dust and noises from outside are proving too much. I hit up the iPod which takes me, via some 90´s classics, up to our first formal stop in Bolivia, around 7am.

Santa Cruz and Samaipata

A travel blog entry by candcthai


... pretty good food which we sample on arrival as it has been a long time since breakfast. Fed and watered we head off to explore the town. Not a lot seems to be going on presumably because it is a national holiday and the streets seem deathly quiet. When we reach the main Plaza, the whole of the town seems to be in there knocking back beers like they are going out of fashion and dancing the afternoon away. By South American standards it is still a pretty quiet affair. If ever ...
