… Surrounded by Mountains and lovely people…. And a lot of 3000m-sun 🙂
Your luggage costs extra in the local busses! (2B+2B)
As every other City in now capitalistic (it is all about the money honey) Bolivia it is very hectic and alive.
The pictures taken are from Quilacollo a suburb West of the City Center, which you can easily reach with one of the mini-buses just look out for their signs on the windshield “Quilacollo”.
They stop wherever you want on their route.
Food is okay… I guess i was in the wrong restaurants (once on the street on plastic chairs super cheap… Two people one beer 60B)
As a vegetarian you will have a little hard time… I recommend: get a hostel with kitchen and go market-shopping 🙂
A big Papaya for 8B should be possible.
They have a Statue of Jesus just like Rio.
Most Bananas are imported by trucks from the more tropical east Bolivia but you can grow Sweet-Banana and Lemon Trees near Cochabamba in an 3000m Altitude!!! Amazing!
Also fig-trees, vine whatever you can think of….
You have to waterit.
Absolutel amazing garnments… They carry their babies around with this cloth on the back.
No special push-cars. I guess beeing closer to mama is Better.
I have heared they have 200 kinds of Choclo = Sweet Maiz (there is Maiz for Animals like Chicken and Maiz for Humans (bigger corns))
You think about volunteering in Bolivia?
There is one Dutch Woman in Quilacollo beeing recommended to me.
A little capitalistic (they gonna charge you money and you will have to work for free?) but good core(i hope)?
