It was getting rich because of Potosi
Used to be Jesuit chapel, this used to be a convent (but Jesuit didn't call them so)

|12:25|| set lunch at el germin |
There is a books exchange, but unlike what it said in Lonely Planet, the service is slightingly fast (at least when you ordered the set lunch which is 17B include soup, main course and dessert and drink...)

You can take the Dino Truck to Cal Orcko (Dinosaur Footprints Park)
Park entrance: additional 30B for foreigners
You have one hour to tour the park
Most tourists are Bolivian, so the guide usually only speaks Spanish. But the good natured guide gave some English explanation, even though I was the only foreigner (well... I did pay 3 times more than locals...)

The tour is in Spanish only (but I understand 80% of the content).

and a bit with the guerilla war with the communist, El Ced

The Soup is good.
Bread is not heated, but it is good bread
Set Menu: soup, main course, dessert for 30b, but that's only for lunch?
so it kind of sucks...
The service is not very attentive, but it may because I show up too early for dinner...
Ordered a tomatoes cream soup for 15B
Vegetarian omelet for 25B
And also a sprite
|18:53|| vegetarian omelet in la posada |
The food is good, of whatever you would expect from a vegetarian omelet.
