We had come to Santa Cruz for one reason only. To leave! Yes, the plane to Paraguay was far cheaper from here than from Cochabamba. But we had found a great hostel and had two nights to relax before our flight. It was far hotter here than Cochabamba so we didn't do too much, a stroll round the city and ...

In a simple home constructed of bamboo and thatch, they live isolated from 21st century conveniences. Their pigs and hens range freely in the garden where we sampled the sweet, slippery, white flesh of the fruit of the cocoa tree, ripe guavas and grapefruit, avocado and achachairu, an orange fruit with a large ...

We never worked out why but we were stuck pretty much for 3-4 hours! For a lot of the time we were stuck next to a cattle truck as well so the smell of cows was very strong! On top of that we had clearly reached the more jungle area as it was starting to get so hot! I changed out of my ...
