Cochabamba

fi...why did we come here again? and can you stop being sick? im bored shitless

sunny 23 °C

So this was one of those places where i looked in the lonely planet and it seemed ok, but then it didnt say in the book that it was friggin miles out of the way, the roads were rooted, the bus trip was shocking, and lets be honest there wasnt really much to see at all.
Having said all that the city of Cochabamba was quite a nice little town to walk around (for an hour or so).

Anyway the big drawcard bringing tens of people to this town is a very impressive statue up on the hill overlooking the town. Its a big version of old JC. To make it more impressive, this statue is actually bigger than the one in Rio that is so so famous.

Well that was about it for Cochabamba. Next stop was a horrid overnight bus to Sucre, one we thought wouldnt take that long when looking at the map....until we felt the road underneath us....
