Crossing the border was simple, bus, taxi to border, emtpy office, 200 metre walk, another empty office and we were in Bolivia! Not too happy at paying the $135 fee for americans though (Alex was free.. )Copacabana is only just over the border and still on the lake, and was actually very picturesque and a nice stop off. We then headed onto Sorata, healthily lower at 2,600mtrs and situated in an amazing steep sided valley, with the mighty Illampu towering 6,400metres above. The valley was simply stunning, and by far the most beautiful place our travels have taken us so far. The first couple of night were spent in the town at what we can only describe as an old colonial īpileī
After Sorata, we reapeted the awful windy journey over the mountains (unpaved roads...) and onto La Paz, a pretty cool city with nice craft shops and some much needed good food!
