Slideshow – Bolivia

Slideshow #3 of our Best of albums.  This time, jumping back to the amazing few weeks we spent in Bolivia.  Check out some of the highlights:

Bolivia at its Cleanest

A lot of people, as well as the guidebooks, call Sucre Bolivia’s most beautiful city. As it was on our way south through the country, we thought it certainly deserved a stop. The city itself is quite lovely with beautiful architecture, including the supreme court of Bolivia (Sucre is the judicial capital). There are some narrow, cobblestone, hilly streets reminiscent of small European towns and there is a mirador (a view point) at the top of a hill where you can look out over the red-roofed buildings and the surrounding rolling hills. It is also noticeably cleaner than some of the other places we had visited in Bolivia, as in the trash was actually put in the trash cans as opposed to anywhere along the side of the road. Everyone from taxi drivers to bar tenders remarked with pride about the cleanliness of their city.

Sucre has a very similar vibe to Cuenca, Ecuador and Arequipa, Peru being that they are all good-sized, attractive, well-kept cities with beautiful buildings, walkable streets and lots of great places to eat and drink (not to mention each is our favorite city in their respective countries).

Though there are a lot of day and multi-day trips that you can do around the area from hiking to horseback riding, we stuck to the city center because we have lots of trekking and outdoorsy time in our future as we heads toward Argentina and Chile.
