The following day we took a taxi to El Fuerte which is a pre inca ruin site near the village. The site was caved out of stone on top of a near by mountain, and although it was very nice, very little is know about the site and very little has been excavated. Part of it looks as if it could have been a UFO landing site! As it was only 9km from town we walked back to town enjoying the mountain views.
Samipata is a small town on the edge of the national park Amboro
We had one final day in Samipata before going back to Santa Cruz and catching our flight to La Paz and although I am working on Latha┤s fear of all animals I think I took a step back that day. We where having a cup of coffee on the patio of this restaurant when a group of stray dogs in the town started fighting on the street near us. Latha first jumped on her chair then on me before I could calm her down. Need less to say she went inside after that. One small step at a time. (Latha┤s comment: ĘThe dogs were fighting over a female dog, and I was fine until the whole pack of them jumped up on the sidewalk where we were and started fighting with each other! Ugh Ugh ugh.)
