A day in Tupiza   Leave a comment

Saturday 13 September 2014

A rest day can start with a lie-in – or with editing photos in bed and almost finishing a new post before breakfast. At some point we may abandon our duties and vacate our room (so that it can be cleaned), climb the roof terrace –

– and enjoy Tupiza from above –

Possibly we then go to the bus terminal to organise our journey to Uyuni the next day, followed by a stroll through the central market –

As it would be a shame to spend such a beautiful day indoors, we may carry on exploring the town –

Iglesia Nuestra Señora de la Candeleria

On the main square – Plaza de la Independencia


If you look closely you can see that the letters are made from cactus wood

It could be that we even climb the Cerro del Sagrado Corazón de Jesús –

Seems that there’s a bridge gone missing…

Nobody around who we could ask what happened here…

The Bolivian Coat of Arms

Home country or Death – we will overcome

And, after returning to the hotel and doing some more work, we may still go out looking for a nice restaurant, spot a procession on the way, curiously follow the people to a church and attend a Bolivian service –

Little did we know that we would need all the blessings we could get the following day…
