Where I stayed
Basically we decided to head to Cochabamba to do a weeks spanish classes, Sucre is the best place to do this but we knew it involved a 15 hour overnighter on a dirt track road and having done that already once we were not up for it again - so here we were.
It was also a week of some down time we are exhausted from buses and non stop moving all the time. Anyway instead of spending a bit extra cash we found this lady who would charge us £5.50 per hour so we signed up for 20 hours for the week.
It was evident after day 2 that this was not going well she had been teaching for 30 years and clearly her methods were old and certainly not suited to a 20 hour week backpacker needs type of class
We spent the week lazing around and since we had a TV in our room and it was ensuite this was total luxury for us so caught up on some sleep and relaxed.
There is also a huge christ statue here called Christo de la Concordia - its actually only just taller than the one in Rio but there were zero tourists so we went up there for a look but just our luck a storm was starting it was so windy and freezing so took our pics and got ba.8-0ck down.
Cochabamba is a lovely wee town with a nice plaza and very little tourists it was nice to chill out and we found this great place to eat they are called 'almuerzos' which is basically a 3 course meal for a whopping £1.80 - bargain !!
Next stop is La Paz where its party time
ensuite room with tv and wifi - £18 a night
3 course meal - £1.80
Entry to the Christ - Free (a change from Rio)
