if life seems absurd what you need is some laughter, and a season to sleep and a place to get clean
i've been staying in the (constitutional) capital of bolivia, sucre, for just over a week now and i love the place. there's something really relaxed, elegant and unpretentious here which puts you at ease and makes you want to slow down and stick around. it's a city that used to (and maybe still does) have a lot of money, and that's reflected in the grand white buildings that are dotted all around the centre. i'd say that it doesn't seem that bolivian, but after spending time in the affluent santa cruz and the indolent samaipata i don't think you can really pin down what that means. i took this from the top of a government building on the main plaza called palacio de la prefectura de chuquisaca. it's an impressive building from the outside, so me and a mate thought we'd see if we could explore the inside. despite an armed presence at the doors we managed to sneak inside, and then kept on climbing a series of successive staircases until we found ourselves next to the flag pole at the top with and awesome view of the city.
