We got a 40 minute flight into Sucre, the city where our guide Karina lives. We are now officially in the Andes at 2750m above sea level. She took us to a fabulous courtyard restaurant and we had a three course meal for $5 and it was really yummy too. Then we went for a walk around Sucre, visiting museums and doing all that kind of stuff. It really is such a pretty little city. Above the church museum is a lookout over the city. We indulged ourselves in the chocolate shop in the afternoon and I had a Baileys chocolate cup shot. Sucre has a much nicer feel than Santa Cruz, we all said we feel safer and happier here. I went and got my nails fixed and promptly lost my credit card by leaving it behind at an ATM, dammit! Here, you get your money first, then receipt and card last. I mucked up. Oh well.
The next day we all went to go for a horseriding adventure
In the evening we went out to a traditional Bolivian Dance Show with dinner. They demonstrated Bolivian folk dances from different regions and eras. It was good fun and they had some great costumes. We were invited up onto the stage at the end to dance with the dancers.
