June Donaldson and Edward Garry live at an altitude of 2,600 metres in Mosoj Llajta, Yotala, 20 minutes from the colonial city of Sucre in Bolivia, South America. Using earth and stones from the land, we have sculpted beautiful buildings which compliment the high desert landscape and incorporate creative and innovative elements of design.

We have designed a high quality hotel in Sucre for guests who want to get off the treadmill of travelling from city to city in South America. At Sky Hacienda you can dictate your own timing and choose how to enjoy your stay, whether it is doing very little or exploring the best that the Andes in Bolivia has to offer.

Kitty only had a few days with us after Christmas so we decided to show her some of the local attractions.

We went to the Dinosaur Park in Sucre. If you look closely you can see the dinosaur footprints on the left of the photo. Ed is dwarfed by the model of one of the prehistoric monsters!

We went to the rural town of Tarabuco which is popular with tourists for its indigenous Sunday market. The town is also famous for having routed the Spanish in a clash before independence was declared in Bolivia. The statue in the town square shows a triumphant inhabitant holding in his hand the heart ripped out of a Spanish soldier. There are no fancy restaurants for tourists - lunch in the market is served in a large hanger.

We also took some trips into Sucre to visit museums, restaurants and parks. Sucre has a musical fountain show in Parque Bolivar every Friday evening.
