The declaration of independence

After a couple of rather large "last night in La Paz" nights out, I finally managed to convince Michelle to leave La Paz.  When i say La Paz i mean Loki, when i say convinced i mean practically dragged!  Fortunately her good sense prevailed and she joined me on the bus to the beautiful white city of Bolivia - Sucre.  The bus was no match for Cruz del Sur but comfortable for a night traversing some rather interesting roads, bends and near misses.  We arrived bright and early in Sucre and were met by a fresh faced smily Dutch girl named Maggie who i have since been on a culinary journey with, but more on that later.  We decided to make our twosome a threesome and we checked into a hostal in Sucre opposite the Mercardo which was my idea of heaven.

  A massive fruit salad and fresh fruit juice (always ask for the extra!) for under 2.50GBP.  Amazing!

We spent a lovely couple of days exploring the white city, such a difference from La Paz!  We visited the Casa del Independencia, which is where the declaration of independence was signed and it was a beautiful building with some lovely exhibits.  The highlight was visiting the Dinosaur park.  We woke early and took the Dino Truck (cue Jurassic Park music) an hour into the hills to look at a wall covered in 4 types of Dinosaur prints.  Really interesting and good fun but not sure it would make my top ten list of things to do in South America!  Still a lovely few days hanging out and recovering after La Paz.

Nice enough place, clean and central but nothing to write home about.
