Where I stayed
Hotel Rosario, La Paz
Arrived into LaPaz after a fairly uneventful bus trip from Puno, at least a few more stamps in the passport. It was an amazing sight driving into La Paz, its built on the side of a mountain & some of the homes just look like they´re hanging on, it certainly was eye catching & so far have a good feeling about Bolivia, looking forward to the 10 days here.
Update since Cusco.....we had 4 nights there after Machu Picchu & it was great to be in the one place for a few days, laundry was finally done & we were pretty happy not to have to repack the bags for a few days. Cusco is very touristy town, lots of people stop here to acclimatise before going to the Inca trail or Lares. Lots of market stalls around, just bought a few things....we had free days here (ie. not tour guide) but we managed to find some cheap nice restaurants & didnt get sick & just spent the time wandering around the maze of streets hoping not to get lost, it was fun
Our first night in LaPaz was a farewell dinner for our Peruvian tour guide Julio & Maryam one of the Canadian ladies. The next night we meet our new tour guide for the 10days in Bolivia & 3 new recruits......
Will update again soon, sorry for the lack of photos but its been pretty hard to download them, incredibly slow & i have no patience, will put some on facebook which is a lot easier, will be in touch soon.
