Sucre, Bolivia

Often called "Ciudad Blanca" for its white-washed colonial buildings, Sucre is Bolivia's constitutional capital, and a UNESCO world heritage site.


The Supreme Court


La Merced Church




Colonial street and San Lázaro Church




The Cathedral








San Francisco Church




Unfortunately Sucre was where Josh was struck down with Typhoid Fever and e. Coli, so we stayed for a couple of weeks while he was recovering. Josh, who is normally pretty healthy claims that this was by far the sickest he has ever been.


At first we were not sure what it was, so he was tested for Malaria and Dengue Fever.

Negative to Malaria!

Coroico

Only a couple of hours away from chilly La Paz is the semi-tropical town of Coroico. We decided to spend a little time just relaxing here since we had been in colder areas for quite some time. One of the great things about Bolivia is that everything is very cheap, so we were able to afford a room at a gorgeous little resort for the same price we had been budgeting for basic hostels in other parts of the continent.
