The horizon west of Sucre is dominated by the dry, earthy tones of the Cordillera de los Frailes. A supposed paradise for hiking among the rugged, ochre-red-and-orange hills, ancient volcanic craters and - perhaps best of all - dinosaur footprints, I signed up for a two-day wander through this little-visited area.

And a real treat it was: putting your hand inside a dinosaur footprint made over one hundred million years ago produces quite a special feeling.
