Sucre was the first Andean city we visited and at an altitude of 2,700 meters, we first experienced the increased difficulty of walking uphill with the thinned air.
We discovered the local dish, pique a lo macho, to be just what the doctor ordered.
It is a classic South American dish, with a pile of chips covered in spicy beef, peppers, onions, spicy sausage, gravy, mayonaise and an egg on top for good measure!
We couldn't resist buying an exquisite weaving made as part of a scheme to revive the artistic tradition of indigenous people in communities nearby.
