Yesterday was unbelievably rainy. I will post a video of a flooded street we traveled down yesterday evening. There have been a lot of problems with water in Cochabamba so the citizens seem to be very happy when it rains. The positive side of the rain is how beautiful all of the plants, trees, and flowers look once it stops
Despite all of the rain yesterday today has been hot and beautiful. This morning we visited the famous Christ statue on the hill. Construction began in 1988 to commemorate the Pope's visit to Cochabamba. The location of the Christ statue gives a perfect view of the entire city. I took so many pictures.
Last night Nora and I went downtown and had beers at a restaurant. We invited a couple of girls from Brazil to come sit with us and before we knew it there were around ten Brazilians at our table. They didn't know much Spanish but spoke English very well. It was interesting to talk with them because they were university students like us.
We had planned to go out tonight but unfortunately I'm not feeling very good. I had managed to avoid an upset stomach for the entire week but I believe a slice of avocado that I ate at the market today has come back to haunt me. So.. enjoy the pictures and cross your fingers that I do not get sick. :)
