Posh Backpackers On Wheels Grace and Marie Therese's Round-the-World Adventure

And so the story continues

BOLIVIA | Saturday, 1 December 2007 | Views [616] | Comments [3]

After leaving yet another family in Loki in LaPaz, we made our way to Copacabana (Bolivia). Started to make new friends on the bus to Copacabana, Germany aka Skittles, and our Spanish doctor and nurses - Fernando, Isabel, Miguel, Blanca and Alberto. The following morning we set out for Isla Del Sol, a beautiful Island on lake Titicaca. Thunderstorms the night before, so packed our raingear, leaving our factor 30 Nivea Suncream back in the hostel. Pretty fresh, cool temperatures, not a bother on us WHAT A MISTAKE. Result: Two fried tomatoes by the end of the trip. We stood out as gringos before, but now we were on a complete different level.

Isla Del Sol and Copacabana a must see!! Beautiful with great restaurants and bars. On returning from the Island, red as turkeys we went straigth for the aftersun, plaaastering ourselves every couple of hours so as not to peel, taking great care! Up next morning...took a look in the mirror..and nearly passed out with laughter at the TANGERINE vision staring back at us. Took a look at the Nivea Aftersun, and because of the language barrier, never noticed the word BRONZEADA!!!!! Tinted aftersun NOT RECOMMENDED!

Landed in Loki, Cusco (Peru), chilling out at the hostel and emailing you lot. Came across a flyer for Bruce Peru, an organisation set up for street children to get into mainstream schools, needing volunteers, so we signed up with our 90$ contributory fee (for a week), and here we are after day 1 of working in 2 different schools with the most adorable children. Both loved it! Heading for Machu Picchu tomorrow....chuuu chuuu chuuuu!

Don´t forget your comments guys!!!!!!!
