Came into Tupiza amid some scenery that looked like the wild west. It also reminded me of Cappadocia in Turkey with the high rock formations. There doesn't seem to be a lot happening in Tupiza but its nice to be on my own again and out of the Jeep. I went horse riding on one day into the surrounding countryside for 5 hours with one English girl. I had never been on a horse before, donkey and camel yes, horse no. It all went pretty smoothly at first until we broke into a trot. The pain was incredible!!!! I was bouncing around trying to ease the pressure on my nuts while trying not to fall off. The look on my face must have been pure agony and I swore I'd never be able to have kids!! I finally managed to get the horse into a full gallop which was a lot easier to ride and softer on the jewels. The country side here was amazing and despite the ride being a little bit uncomfortable it was well worth it.
