Travel Recap: Are We Sweet Enough for Sucre
After a long absence in the blog world, I finally gained some time to write. I was discussing Bolivia with a colleague last Wednesday evening after work and I realized, I haven't shared Sucre here yet. Here it is:
There are lots of quality restaurants around town and you can spend the day just lazing around coffee shops.
Bolivia's most beautiful and elegant city. It was declared a Unesco World Heritage Site in 1991. Architecturally speaking, it's a city that Bolivia can be proud of. The whitewashed colonial buildings and naturally landscaped patios really surprised us. The charming courtyard restaurants and sleepy bistros during daytime reveal traces of how lively this city could get after hours. It lies serenely on a valley surrounded by mountains with a mild climate.
Our bus from Uyuni. arrived in Sucre mid- morning. Without a shower (oh, no make-up), stomachs growling for breakfast, we immediately visited the Sucre's town square, Plaza de Armas. We took a taxi from the bus terminal to get to the town centre. Way finding is easy around Sucre due to the grid planning of the city.
