Tarata

Last Saturday I ventured out to Tarata (literally means tara trees in the direct object form in Quechua … I’ve started Quechua lessons), a sleepy little town a little less than an hour outside of Cochabamba. I went there because the town has supposedly some of the best colonial architecture in the area. Even though the town really has some beautiful old buildings and has not had any major modern redevelopment, there are a ton of buildings slowly crumbling into the earth. The town also felt really slow and sleepy, which was refreshing from the cosmopolitan capital which is Cochabamba. Anyways, I had fun walking around and checking out the buildings.
