Sucre is the 'constitutional' capital of Bolivia, whatever that means, but there seem to be lots of lawyers offices and it's where the country's best university is, and it's a very nice colonial place with leafy squares and lots of nice buildings. This afternoon we actually popped out of town for a couple of hours on the 'Dino Truck' to see some dinosaur footprints that have been preserved and recently uncovered in a nearby quarry - reasonably interesting! However, Tom was more interested in taking photos of the big plastic dinosaur models that they've got in the tacky 'interpretation centre' on site, which only opened last month.
We have got pretty used to boys in previous towns wanting to shoe-shine our (fabric) walking trainers - but the ones here even wanted to shoe shine our Teva sandals! You´ve got to give them credit for trying - but they´ll be wanting to shoe-shine flip-flops next!
