Dinosaur tracks

After our adventures on the salt plains we made it to one of Bolivias oldest cities Sucre. It is quite a small town with gorgeous old buildings and churches. Many of the buildings were whitewashed with small balconies and ornately designed features, more of what you would expect to find in Europe than Bolivia.

Sucre began as the spánish capital known as La Plata, the centre of a huge territory which stretched from the south of Peru into Argentina. Before La Paz it was the capital of Bolivia, and still today is considered the peoples capital.

We stayed in a hostel that felt like it had been converted from an old mansion. It had huge high ceiling rooms and marbled hallways and almost everything was white. Behind the hostel was a lovely walled courtyard covered in plants and when enjoying breakfast in the sun we found it hard to believe we were in the middle of Bolivia.

We visited a stone quarry with our new travelling friends Anthony and Britt. A few years ago they discovered huge areas of dinosaur footprints embedded into the stone. The area is now converted into a dinosaur park and we spent the afternoon checking them out.
