Leaving in spooky fog : 9 Celcius to Arrive in Bright Sun 26.6 Celcius

Track: La Paz to Cochabamba, Bolivia

Leaving La Paz hidden in a chilly spooky fog, we drove towards the sun in Cochabamba.

The Panda had good fun on some muddy roads, so first things first: getting the car de-mudded to its original white colour...

After that, time for a walk through the city centre. Taking in the abundance of colours, and enjoying the beautiful blossoming flower and lush greenery. 

What did we not enjoy? Mosquitos in our room...

Fun Fact 2

On our way out, we passed Forum, the discotheque where we saw each other for the first time, 20 years back.

Yep, we are getting old- did not go there after the overwhelming Ant-Eating Experience we decided to call it a day and skip Forum.
