And what time do we arrive in Tarija? About three in the morning! I´t takes them hours to unload all the goods that have been smuggled over the border from Argentina so we were allowed to stay on the bus and doze till daybreak
And what a disappointment Tarija is! Gone are all the lovely friendly people of Argentina, gone are the cheap supermarkets and camp sites and gone is any variety whatsoever for a vegetarian. We lasted a day then bought a couple of tickets to Sucre. Wasn´t all bad though - did find an amazing little museum with some fantastic fossils, a huge armadillo shell and the remains of an Andean elephant - absolutely mind-blowing the size of all these creatures.
Looking forward to heading north, have heard good things about Sucre...
