This section was built to replica the hall of mirrors in Versae France
Walked down to the Opera HOuse and did a tour. It´s a very impressive building. They renovated a few years ago and it took 4 years and 1000´s of men. They have a lot of gold leaf in one section and they could only clean 40 cms a day. Went back to the hotel and caught a taxi out to La Boca. Intrepid have created a partneship with 3 NGO´s to help spport them. The first we visited was started by a lady to help support kids and get them off the streets. They make biscuits and sell them to raise money to helpthe kids before or after school.They also provised our lunch The 3rd one was an artit who helps other artists in the area. We wondered around for a while. James bought a little painting and then we headed back into the main centre. The guide wasn´t real keen on us wsndering around to much. That night we went out to a steak house. Boy do they have some large chunks of beef. James and I ended up sharing one as it was 800 gms!!!
