In La Paz every Sunday there is Cholitas wrestling on which involved women, midgets, & alot of men dressed up in tights putting on there performances. I enjoyed it, thought it was a great laugh however Bern did not as much as myself. He is now quite scared of the local women, before they were women in there traditional skirts & pigtails who sold him bread or a juice on the street, now they could potentially throw him across a street. It was quite expensive for Bolivian standards (5 pounds which you can get 10 hours of bus travel) & was definitely geared towards the tourists. There were alot of the wrestlers which were tossed over the barriers (if you can call them that) & onto the tourist laps. Was another quite night as after such excitement we were exhausted. We blame the altitude so it does not make us feel old. Going to be in La Paz for a little while as our friends need to sort some things out with their banks & we could do with catching up with our blog & some admin things while in a big city.

Hope you are all still enjoying.

Love Tam & Bern
