Sucre is a town on the edge of the Bolivian highlands. It was the capital of Bolivia for a while, it was close enough to get some of the money from the silver mines in Potosi so it has a certain eligance to it. Due to our minor travel disaster in La Paz we lost a day in Sucre, which was a shame, I would have liked the opportunity to look around more.
It is an amazing place to walk around. Very Spanish, just about every building is white washed, most of the buildings have their own courtyard, so you walk in off the street and suddenly into a different world.
If you do go there, I can recommend walking up to the hill to Plaza Anzures, it looks out over the town and there is also a nice cafe that does some very good munchies.
The market is worth a visit, but most markets are. Sucre Market
is special though, that's where Bob came from, but I don't
expect anyone would be able to find anything like Bob, regardless of how
hard they look.
