Copacabana, Bolivia - Le Port

So, the original plan was to visit the Sun Island which is located nearby Copacabana; but unfortunately we had a quick change in plans when Arnaud got seriously sick because of food poisoning from the night before and the altitude in Bolivia . . . What fun!!  So I ended up having to play Doctor Galván and hence unable to visit "La Isla del Sol!!" Bummer!!

Still, no regrets because this town was a bit of a disappointment.  It was just another typical touristy town, over-priced, and on top of that filled with unpleasant people.  I gotta say, so far, don’t have a very nice opinion of Bolivians.  They seem to be a bit cold and even a bit mean.  Maybe, it doesn’t help when one of us isn’t feeling too great either!!  The stress!!  Hopefully that’ll change though!

My stroll around town was pretty uneventful and even a workout, gotta admit!  I found myself fighting to catch my breath after only walking for about a few minutes!!  Phew!  Bolivia is high!!!!!!!!  So I found myself quickly heading back to the hotel to join my patient who was resting quietly!!  :)  Did us both some good, I gotta admit!!

Malade comme un chien, c’est mon résumé de Copacabana, la veille d’y arriver, on a voulu se faire un petit plaisir et aller manger au resto, rien de spécial.

Copacabana, Bolivia - J&A in Copacabana
Le lendemain, j’avais quelques crampes au ventre mais rien d’alarmant, vers midi, ça a commencé à etre la fete pour moi, n’oublions pas qu’on est à 3810m et que pour aller en Bolivie, c’est entre 500 et 1000m de plus, donc quand vous mélangez altitude + intoxication alimentaire, c’est pas du joli.

Arrivé à destination, on est resté à l’hotel 2 jours et on est parti directement à La Paz, la capitale !
