Where I stayed

Flag of Bolivia  ,
Thursday, November 6, 2008

Just arrived in Bolivia no problem but can't stay too long because don't have any 'bols'. So i will be quick. Left Cusco yesterday after getting my rucksacck stolen while we were eating. We ate at a little restaurant next to teh bus station with all our stuff whihc we put all in a corner and as we were eating somebody took my bag right infront of our nose. Fortunatly I still have all  my papers, cards and camera but lost sunglassess and telephone. Eventhough I am fuming I think that it could have been worse. We searched the restaurant, much to the displeasure of the owner but you never know). We arrive atg Puno at 6am to try and catch some friends, Marco and Anais, called there hostel but said they were there. Therefore we toke a bus at 7h30 and made our way to Copacabanae. So we´re at Copacabana along the lake titicaca, renting a sailing boat (small 5/6m one) and heading off to the island of Sol and Lunes. Going to stay over night at the island del sol. Will give updates when I get back or maybe later tongiht if I manage to change some dollars at an appropriate rate.

Et voilà les Gringos :)
De retour vers les dures réalités des touristes..
C'est ton sac à dos solaire que tu t'es fait volé? Hormis le téléphone, il y avait quoi d'autre d'important? tes guides, la trousse de secours? J'ai essayé de te contacter au n° que tu avais laissé sur le répondeur(0059122139625) mais la ligne ne fonctionne pas. Essaie de trouver un peu d'argent local, voici le cours du change de ce soir:
1.00 EUR = 8.97691 BOB
1 BOB = 0.111397 EUR
Vous allez jusqu'à La Paz ? Juste pour les cigares.. :) Joke
Bon allez, on attend les prochaines péripéties :)

Hi Guys!
Seb, Thanks so much for the photos and letting us know how you are.....sorry about your bag :( bummer.

Oh well, at least your papers are safe. Olivier, how are you? Your aunt is going to have a hayday with your hair.

Everyone is so happy about Obama but he isn't the Messiah that everyone thinks he is...poor guy, everyone expects miracles.

Stay well, sending you plenty of good travel vibes.

Kisses from lamama.
