Got up and out of the hostel at around 10.45, and headed straight for the chocolate cafe Para Ti. This time, I tried the chocolate fondue with fruits (B6) and chocolate cake (B6.50), awesome and cheap. Spent some time picking chocolates as gifts for people back home, and spent a good B450 on chocolates there.

Proceeded back to the hostel to have the value menu of the day. That restaurant at the hostel is surprising ranked 4th in sucre by tripadvisor! Had a Spanish siesta after (1 hour nap), before heading to Recoleta for views over the whole of Sucre. It was a short uphill walk, and reached the mirador within 15 minutes. It was a nice colonial style corridor overlooking the city. Next to the mirador were local people peddling their wares. The prices here were much more reasonable and cheaper than La Paz. I ended up buying a few necklaces and wristbands for B7.50-10 each, a big scarf and a smaller one for B80, and a weaved bag for B50. Quite a spendy day I'd say.

Headed for dinner after at tripadvisor recommended restaurant called Cafe Monterreso. It was kinda hard to find as the only sign was a small one on the wall. The restaurant was situated in the living room of the owner's house. They served Italian food, and I had a good lagsana(B38) and Tiramisu(B15). Quite pricey by Bolivian standards but darn cheap by Singapore prices.

Heading to the Tarabuco Market tomorrow!
