I got on the bus with Joel to Corumba. It was a long but ok journey - nice by my recent standards! It as 6 hours on the bus and only half an hour late. Sure enough I was met off the bus by someone presenting me wih my train ticket - it cost me 55 Reals and it would have only cost 30 from the station!!!! They gave me good advice for the border....
I had to wait till 2pm for the Brazilian imigration office to open which was in the bus terminal
then I hopped on a mototaxi to the border for $5 - this was pretty cool with all my stuff, it had been a hile since ive been on one of them
Then I got my ntry stamp into bolivia
Then I changed the small amount of Reals I had nto olivianos for probably a bad rate (it was only 20 Reals)
Then I got into a taxi, paid him with my exchanged money, then I bought some water
Then I got on the train on time, AND REMARCABLY it left on time!
Then, the whole thing was full and so it was right that I bought my ticket in advnce - thank god!
All beng well, I will be in Santa Cruz 9am tomorrow
