We spent a couple of hours watching one of the three major street carnivals that happen each year in Bolivia. This one is organised by universities and it was amazing to see the enthusiasm of the students who took part. Bolivians take cultural activities very seriously and they are an essential part of all university courses.
The variety and detail of the costumes also amazed us. We only saw a small part of the parade which went on all day.
The whole event was bright, noisy and great fun!
If you don't have much time, which are the must-see articles that capture the essence of the story? Try these...
Join us on a journey through mountain scenery to the beautiful blue water of Lake Titicaca, then get a glimpse of life at the sharp end as we visit the church in a shack. Find out how a playground was restored and a whole church renewed, and be inspired by a church's local outreach and a group of young people bringing hope to a deprived area.
Then read all the rest!
The articles on this page are dated according to when the events described actually happened. During the trip we tried to keep the blog as up to date as possible but there was often a day's delay - occasionally more - in making uploads, so the blog posts generally have later dates.
