Photo Essay: Sucre Bolivia

Sucre Bolivia-11

Welcome to another wonderful PHOTO ESSAY WEEK! While I’m sure we have a million stories, nothing can really describe the amazingness of the last few weeks we experienced in Bolivia.

Let’s just say we were happy to spend a week in Sucre Bolivia after our La Paz experiences. Not only is the place super chill but it is absolutely beautiful and has an energy around it that explains why so many people get stuck here taking Spanish classes and participating in local culture.

Honestly, we were so happy to get the hell out of La Paz that stumbling upon this city lifted up our spirits tenfold. La Paz, while it can be cool, is a soul sucking, cold place in the Andes. I hit my limit. I’m done with the Andes. I want warmth. I want non-altitude. Get us the hell out of Bolivia!

But Sucre was a pleasure to be in. The warmth of the sun! OH THE WARMTH… OMG Why I am now so pasty?!?!?! My 6 month Caribbean tan is now GONE!

Moving on… Our days were spent working in the mornings, grabbing our afternoon coffee, walking around, and cooking dinner with 2…3… 4.. I don’t know bottles of wine with our friends Travis and Kara. You can never go wrong with that.

  1. These photos brings out right back! We had a great time in Sucre. If you have time hike with the Condor Trekkers. They are great!!!

    Too bad you had a bad time in La Paz. We actually loved our time in La Paz but when we were there it was much much warmer!

    Go up the view point .. the restaurant there is great and cheap.

    1. @91 Days: We actually really liked our time there, we just had a few bad run ins. I just don’t understand how summer can be SO COLD.

  2. Good pictures, I’ve heard so much good about Bolivia. Everyone loves it. I’ll anly be heading there in mid 2013, I surely will be going through Sucre. From the looks of the dogs on the last picture, it must have been pretty warm after all. Thanks for sharing.

    1. @Normand: AWESOME MAN! You’re going to love it. I can’t believe we spent over a month there. I didn’t think it was possible. So many things to do and see… and CHEAP.

  3. Wow those pictures look awesome (especially the almost choreographed dogs :P)! Can’t wait to head to Bolivia! Meanwhile we’re going to replicate your time lapse experience going from Banos to Puyo tomorrow morning 😀 Hope we wake up early enough! Haha!

    1. @Ashray: Well, we HAD to get the dogs! They are a hoot. They even lay down in the middle of the road and all the cars drive around them. Hope you had a good ride!

  4. Your photos, as always, are fantastic! I don’t know much about Bolivia, but I’ve always heard Sucre was better than La Paz. (Pasty? Um…no you’re not!)

    1. @Ali: Okay, I guess my disclaimer should be that I am pasty for ME. For being a Latina I am PASTY. <3 Sucre is a million times better. I wish we would have been there sooner.

  5. Well done on capturing the beauty of Sucre in you photography! I’ve just moved to Sucre for a few months and so far am absolutely loving the place. It’s so pretty, so cheap, and so warm…my Australian skin is loving the sun 🙂

    1. Thanks Brigid! It was really hard to leave. We wanted to spend a couple of more weeks there but had to get going. It is so warm in comparison to the rest of Bolivia!
