Welcome to Sucre, the capital of Bolivia. Here you can see the rooftops of the centre like I could see it every day I went from Mama Vikis place to my language school (Fox language school).
When crossing this place, I knew I will be there in a few minutes.
Here you can see the Iglesia de San Francisco.
Here you can see the casa de libertad which is located at the Plaza 25 de Mayo.
The window is arranged like the Bolivian flag and the slogan says: " The union is the strength"
The Plaza 25 de Mayo is really beautiful.
Moreover, the Cathedral of Sucre is also next to the Plaza.
Here, a detail of the tower of the Cathedral.
This street is not only quite white. It is one of the tourist's streets: You find good restaurants, travel agencies and many more,...
Some more palm trees on the Plaza.
Here, the facade of the Cathedral showing to the Plaza 25 de Mayo.
This is an overview of the greenery on the Plaza.
Another picture of Iglesia de San Francisco.
On the first weekend in Sucre, I joined a group in order to do some trekking along an Inka trail. On the way, our bus got stuck and we had to walk a little further.
Behind us, there lies Sucre in the valley.
And in front of us: The Andes.
After the short but strenuous walk up we stopped at a chapel of Chataquila. Next to it, there is the beginning of the Inka Trail.
Here a first sight off the Inka Trail.
This trail leads down into the valley.
And this is the trail
Another nice view of the track.
Although we're walking down, the view is breath taking.
In the front, there is the inka trail. Moreover, one can enjoy the Cordiella de los Frailes.
This is a view of the trail we just came down.
But there are still some meters down to into the valley.
Finally, we reached the valley and walked south along the canal.
Down in the valley, one can observe quite strange earth formations.
And also, the layer structure of the mountains.
I think, a few weeks ago, there could have been the raining season (okay, it was end of the raining season...)
After a few hours of walking, we left the valley and this is a look back...
So, there are toads in Bolivia!
This way up!
On the way up, we passed this waterfall on a rather unsafe path.
Then, we met these guys!
And they were going down the path we just came up. And they didn't seem to be bothered by the path (the way we were...)
In the evening hours, we finally arrived in the Cráter de Maragua where we spent the night.
In these huts we stayed for the night. No electrical power, no warm water.
Next morning, we headed out of the Cráter again and walked toward Quila Quila.
These two young bolivianos just earned their breakfast...
and we were getting closer to the rim of the Cráter.
Here, you can see the crater after we left it.
And again, we saw this layered structure which lead a british co-traveller to call out: "God must have been German..."
This is the Museo de la Recoleta located at the Plaza Anzures.
This is the Plaza Anzures from which one can view nicely the roofs of the center of Sucre.
Here comes the rain!
And with the rain it was noticably colder the next days.
