Tarija

It is not a chronological entry but my stay there was so pleasant that I have to write about it. 

I arrived there in a kind of funny bus (the picture does not actually show that). The bus had almost a sound of WRC car. Fully packed with people and their stuff it only missed some chicken in it. The road wasn´t paved, everything was shaking and I had to fight a little bit for a sitting place (which I had a ticket for). And of course, like most buses in Bolivia it is a night bus, so you don´t get decent sleep.

Initially I was going to spend two days in Tarija, but extended my stay everyday. Manana I will go, I was saying to myself.

The city is a good place to enjoy pleasant weather during evenings:

Or other various dance performances (including stunning contemporary dance performance):

During my stay I helped to cook some Halava:

And then documented the process of selling it on the streets of Tarija:

And finally, I went for a short walk to the mountains (to see some waterfalls):

For those who missed my location from previous post, I am in Cochabamba at the moment.
