That night we went to a concert at the Municipal theatre where a ´maestro´ of the Charango was playing.
Incredible music apart from the fact that after each song he made a speach of several minutes introducing the next one song, which was fine at the beginning but gets quite boring when you dont understand half of what is said.
Took the bus from Copacabana at 18h, went over moutains along the lake Titicaca then around 20h got a ferry to cross the lake (crazy). The bus took a boat and we took one separatly. Xavi didnt want to pay the 1 bol (10 euro cents) to cross the river and managed to do so by saying he was colombian (he is Basque). LOL. When we arrived in La Paz crosed El Alto first (suburb of La Paz which is on the top plateau) and had a superbe view of all La Paz. Next day we went to the museum of music. Saw loads of weird and wonderful instruments and it was possible to play some of them so we spent quite alot of time playing with oli. I even tried playing an organ.
