Delightful Sucre.

I knew where I wanted to spend Christmas the moment I walked into B&B Casa Verde. It’s owned by a Belgian guy and it is a wonderful little oasis in the heart of the city.

“Proud, genteel Sucre is Bolivia’s most beautiful city, and the symbolic heart of the nation. It was here that independence was proclaimed, and while La Paz is now the seat of government and treasury, Sucre is recognized in the constitution as the nation’s capital. A glorious ensemble of whitewashed buildings sheltering pretty patios, it’s a spruce place that preserves a wealth of colonial architecture.” Excerpt From: Planet, Lonely. “Lonely Planet South America.”

My first 4-days were spent visiting the many splendid attractions of this delightful city. I would be back in Sucre very soon, just in time to enjoy Christmas.

Next stage: Santa Cruz and Samaipata.



About Richard Griffith

My first independent travel experience was a trip to Israel, in 1997, it was here that I caught the 'travel' bug! In 2001 I took an 8-month sabbatical and traveled around South East Asia. Since then I have managed to visit most of Eastern Europe along with India, Bangladesh, and a few other destinations in between. I love travel and I love meeting new people.
