Riped Off by Ripley's Tours and Panosur

Wednesday, October 7th, 2009

We had a great tour of the Salar de Uyuni but we were pretty disappointed with our tour provided by Ripley Tours. Our driver could barely keep his eyes open on the first day driving and had to put his head out the window to stay awake, our group was told our driver would speak […]

Sweets in Sucre

Saturday, October 3rd, 2009

I have a thing for capital cities. After living in Wellington (capital of NZ), Adelaide (capital of South Australia), Canberra (capital of Australia) and London (capital of UK), I thought that I would move to Ottawa (capital of Canada) just to keep the trend going.
