South America » Bolivia » La Paz Department » Copacabana April 10th 2008

So this morning i woke fairly early although the baby screaming next door, the early church bells and the dogs barking did not make for a great nights sleep, me and adam risked our lifes in the shower with the dodgey bolivan electrics, not together though......lol. We grabbed breakie at a nice little place and looked round the local church which was cool and then we looked round the shore which was nice till we saw rubbish dumped, it appears that alot of south american countrys dont care about the environment. I then found a hostel for 15 bolivanos and moved my stuff and then we had a wonder round town and we both bought water bottles for cusco in an outdoor store and then we met the couple from yesterday and they and adam booked ... read more

South America » Peru » Ica » Huacachina April 3rd 2008

So after finishing off my last blog i made myself a massive 6 egg omlette (with vegggies so my mum does not worry...lol)which was scrummy if i do say so myself and then followed up doing a pub quiz in the bar of the hostel, i joined a team called as good as it gets and this team consisted of me, a peruvian guy,a Candian girl and two Dutch couples. It was fun and we ended up third, im afraid no prize for best third place finish but all proceeds went to help street kids, after the quiz i went to get some kip as i was tired, i always seem to be tired must be this constant moving on. The plan was to go to pisco the next morning, but plans can and will change. ... read more
