So. Here’s the reasons we haven’t been very active on this fantastic blog.
- We’ve spent the last 3 weeks in Sucre trying to perfect (at least improve) our Spanish. I can now proudly say that I can pronounce how old I am without saying that I have 28 anuses. Go us!
- Staying in Sucre for 3 weeks doesn’t give you that to much to blog about.
Anyway, Sucre is this beautiful little city in the middle of Bolivia where the weather is warm and the Spanish schools are many. We chose to study with Fenix and we have no regrets. We did a 3 week “pair” package where we got accomodation included AND we also had included 3 cooking classes (cook the Bolivian food right and you’re in for a treat) and 3 sessions of Wally. Wally is the Bolivian version of volleyball and squash and it’s the most fun sport I’ve ever played. The only bad thing about it is that you can’t play it anywhere else in the world as you need the walls to be the actual court and sometimes people break a foot or 2… If you’re ever in Bolivia, make sure you play this wonderful game.
What else have happened…..we’ve wined, dined, partied (as much as you can in Sucre), we’ve cooked, shopped, been to the movies, relaxed, bing watched Netflix (it’s not everyday you have a room, bathroom and kitchen to yourself) and we’ve had a few tanning sessions.
Sucre is the city of festivals which means you will almost always hear a trumpet and symbol band somewhere in the distance. If people here aren’t parading with instruments and traditional dance on the street then you might get the chance to see a fashion parade instead.
We have now made it to Uyuni and it’s easy to say we were pretty happy to get moving again. Although we almost missed our bus. That’s what happens when you go out and come home at 5am and are meant to be picked up at 8 am. We woke up at 8.30 in panic and somehow made our bus even though we missed our ride.
In 90 minutes we are off on our 3 day adventure around the salt flats with the ending destination Chile. More about that then!
