Sucre, Bolivia

Sucre continues to enchant. No amount of white paint was spared to turn this city 2800 meters up in the Andes into a shining colonial architecture monument. UNESCO thinks so too.

The Museo de la Recoleta, an old convent built in 1600 on a hill, offers a great view over the city and the surrounding mountains. Although it is lower than Lhasa, which I visited three years ago, I find I have to breathe more than normal when going up those steep hills… But tomorrow will make 2800 meters seem like nothing.
