As usual the taxi driver is an experienced suicidal manic. But it makes a huge difference between a experienced suicidal manic and a green suicidal manic. The trip to Santa Cruz almost seem too short.
Not much better than the 120b quality. It has air-con, TV, fridge and of course private bathroom. Breakfast is also included.
|17:10||hotel viru viru|
There is flight to Puerto Suarez on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
Price: 500B (The AeroSur girl in Sucre quoted me 832B)
AeroSur has an office on the Eastern side of the plaza, Lonely Planet brought me to the very far south (1km south of the plaza) to buy ticket. The location of TAM in Lonely Planet is also wrong.
The ticket for Train to Quijarro (Ferrobus) was full (I tried to buy ticket one day in advance around 4:30pm). The regional train for Wednesday is available, not sure about the tourist train.
|19:31|| salad at lorco santa cruz |
Salad for 27B
South east side of the plaza
Ordered a Lorco Salad for 27B.... it is nothing special
Vegetarian who don't like salad should definitely avoid this place....
Also ordered a Romeo and Julio Crepe... for 15B and a sprite
Service is prompt and professional
|20:03|| basilica menor de san lorenzo |
or the Brasilia
