It may have taken what seemed like forever to get here as they had blockaded the roads again but it's going to be worth it !!! We just about managed to live through the extended bus journey , which turned from an easy 10 hourer to almost 24, without throttling the conductor/ entertainment dude on the bus who thought that even though every one was trying to sleep it was still only fair that he was allowed to watch endless shit 80's movies all night. What made it worse was that the only speaker that worked properly was above our heads at the top banana / captain of the ship/ creme dela creme/ best seats in the house/ seats 3 and 4 at the front, and the mad, movie loving insomniac was sitting at the back and had to turn the film up to ear bleeding volume so that he could hear!!!!!!!!
We didn't break down however which made a nice change, though we were stopped and searched at least half a dozen times, maybe the politzia thought we were harboring fleeing guinea pigs or something, who knows but surely it's wrong to drop the little guys into boiling oil whilst still alive, I don't know, in England they're pets not lunch, we don't head down the local pet store to select the evening meal, it just doesn't seem right.
It's great not being cold at night too, I don't think either of us were quite prepared for how freezing cold Bolivia got after 4 in the afternoon. Our shorts and little skirts didn't quite match up to everyone elses thermals, jackets and bobble hats !!!!! It's also nice not to have to put up with the seemingly endless competitors for the 'see who can wear the most stripey bolivian clothes / not wash their hair and grow a stupid beard ' competition which must have been running while we were in Copacabana !!!!!!!!!! Pah !!!!!!!!!! Sorry ,must be getting old or something !!!!!!
We've found a brilliant place to stay here in Pisco, it's called ' San Isdro ' and at the moment we're the only people staying here !!!! It's really nice with a lovely pool, free internet, laundry, pool table , table tennis AND coffee in the morning, can't ask for more than that can you ??? well, I know,.
