Taste Coffee as You Taste Wine in Baños

Arte Cafe & Te Restaurant 12 de Noviembre 200 y Oriente- Baños. This is a special post about a very special place for people who love coffee and tea; people who enjoy quiet, romantic places and want a real break. What is so special about this place? Well, we were just walking around one day when we found a nice-looking coffee shop. What first attracted us were the “hammock chairs” hanging at the tables. So we thought we’d come here “someday” and enjoy a hammock while having a drink. “Someday” finally came, so we went to the coffee shop and found out that it was not just good looking, but also full of treasures and surprises!

A Whole Month in Cochabamba

Cochabamba is a middle town six hours east of La Paz. We went there basically to save money, to rest and to get a bit of privacy after three months of staying at people’s places.

Our First Days in La Paz

We arrived in La Paz in the middle of the night after a very tiring flight from Los Angeles. The first thing you see from the plane—and then at anytime during the night—is the lights. La Paz, unlike many other cities, is illuminated by two different colors of lights—yellow and blue. This is so beautiful—it looks like a big Christmas tree. In addition, the different levels of the city increases the beauty of this night landscape. * 1$=6.95 BoB “Bolivianos” (2012) We found a room on Airbnb and stayed at a Bolivian family home (Natalia & her mother) in southern La Paz, a 20-minute drive from downtown. The family was waiting for us, and after welcoming us...
