July 26, 2009
Sunday was designated a day of relaxation. The daytime weather in Tarija was fabulous (i.e. not freezing), nearly everything was closed for the day, and our overnight bus for Sucre didn’t leave until 6 p.m.
We woke up around 11, and checked out of our hostel, then headed to a Mediterranean restaurant on Plazoleta Sucre for lunch. I had vegetable-stuffed cannelloni covered in a delicious mushroom sauce (mushrooms, another food that’s difficult to find in Argentina).
Then we strolled up to the mirador Loma de San Juan, and spent some time chatting in the sunshine, looking over the city.
The bus ride to Sucre was fairly tame in comparison to our previous run. The seats were more conventional, as were our fellow travelers. There were also fewer random stops, and most of the road was paved.
