|The first thing we saw as we entered Bolivia. Cool sign.|
|Looks just like Peru so far.|
|That logo on the left reminds me of Star Trek.|
|Again: Juxtaposition of natural beauty and what humans are capable of. The town smelled like sewage when we arrived.|
|Framing the photo makes a world of difference.|
|Sunset from our new home: Las Olas Hostel, the best place on Earth.|
|The night couldn't have been any better. Kitties?! Yes, two adorable little kitties that crawled into my lap.|
|Day two in Copacabana: Yes, this might not be very tasteful, but I was taking a photo |
of the bus, I swear. That kid just happened to be taking a leak at the same time.
|They love their trucha (trout) here. You can pretty much order it at any restaurant in town.|
|Speaks for itself. Totally made my day...|
|Women selling things on the street. Their clothing style is basically the same as in Peru, |
except they are ever so slightly more modern than in Peru.
|Just a baby leg in the middle of the street, amongst a bunch of other trash.|
|This homeowner couldn't get his hands on barbed wire.|
|And finally, back to our little respite at Las Olas.|
Las Olas is seriously one of the coolest places I've ever stayed. Monica and I have our own private mud-brick building, two levels, with hammocks on the top level, two enormous beds, a fireplace, windows overlooking Lake Titikaka, a small kitchenette and our own private outdoor patio with more hammocks and nooks to hang out in. We lucked out because the owner couldn't find my original reservation upon arrival, so he let us stay in the suite that's being repainted. Because of the inconvenience, he gave us a discount for the three nights we'll be here, which averages $15/night each. He also owns an amazing restaurant down the way, where we've had dinner and breakfast. He is an artist and designed everything himself, so we keep noticing little details here and there, and we're just amazed by it all. We have one more night here ... I don't want to leave!
