This place has an altitude problem...

We flew into Sucre on a beautiful bright blue skied day, and had amazing views of the mountains, with the town nestling at 2,800 metres above sea level. Now thats high. It can take a little while to adjust to the altitude, you can really feel out of breath mega quickly just walking around town!
But we didnt mind a bit, this town is STUNNING, gorgeous colonial whitewashed buildings, beautiful little streets, lots of greenery, and although a very popular destination, feels very untouristy. They say people always stay here longer than planned, we have already spent 2 days here longer than we expected! We´ve enrolled with Spanish Classes here, which so far have been brilliant, bags of fun, and as a result have rearranged our trek dates so we could take more classes. I´ve taken loads of pics, but the thought of uploading pics here seems impossible, because of the incredibly slow internet connections, so for now, here´s one I nicked off google!

By the weekend, we should have fully acclimatised, and will be off to do our first ´warm up trek´for 2 days!
