But after an afternoon of tequila slammers and beer to celebrate Kat's A-Level success, 4 of us set out from Santa Cruz to Puerto Suárez, on the border with Brazil. The alcohol enabled us to sleep reasonably well!
It may have been a first class train but it was a real bone shaker. The 13 hours or so needed to travel 650km were necessary because any faster and we would have been a derailment statistic!
At 8.30 am we arrived at the train station and hopped into a taxi.
