Ah, finally I have good Internet and time to sit down and write.
I am currently at the café that Carmela (my host mom) owns :). It’s a cute little thing in the garden besides a daycare, quite close to the city center. Perfect to sit down and have a guava juice & do some work before hitting the gym as I’m doing now. Yes, I’ve found an great gym here where I’m gonna spend most of my afternoons from now on.
So as you know, this weekend the carnival was in town. It was an amazing experience indeed with various traditional bolivian dances, costumes and songs. The carneval lasted for over 13 hours straight! With an endless amount of groups that performed and all had different clothes. Just imagine the amount of participants coming from all over the coutry to perform, and even more people who come just to see and experience it! And in the meantime you also have ‘water wars’ with everyone, people were literally soaking you in water, powder color and this kind if foam they use aswell. It was all so much fun, but we gave up after 12 hours, feeling quite exhausted and wet, but satisfied! 🙂
