Arrived with my legs actually killing me as my bus seat was so cramped. Woke up ample times with my knees throbbing.
Got ripped off by a taxi driver when I arrived. Asked him to take me to the Hostal and he charged me 10 Bolivianos for what was a 30second drive! Swore at him ample in English but he couldnt really understand...another reason to learn better spanish, haha.
I went to sleep when I got in the Hostal as I was so tired. Woke up when Bend arrived and after catching up and using the hot(freezing cold) shower the Hostal promised we headed out.
Copacabana is very strange, they have no power until 6pm at night! It gets dark around 4:30 so going to the toilets becomes pretty difficult.
We went to a few bars and just had a chilled day, played lots of connect-four (we both won 4 games) and finally staggered back to the Hostal.
We also discussed, at length, how good travelling is...and kinda half-agreed to plan the trip of a lifetime! We are gonna try to get a camper-van in about 2 years, load it up, Me, Bend and 2 others then take off, starting in India and drive around the world for a year! Would be so exciting so hopefully that will happen!
Is good to hook back up with Bend and we both had a class night.
Gonna head to La Paz today as Copacabana is tiny and we only met here to have 1 day of chilling.
We were woken up by the hillarious old woman who runs the Hostal. She was banging on our door and jabbering on in Spanish. She is so funny, she has no teeth and such a high pitched voice!
So off to La Paz for us, then more exciting stuff: Worlds most dangerous road, Maidi Jungle, a local football game just to name a few! Exciting exciting!
