Here's the ride video of me leaving Robore, past the big red rock and through the jungle road, gives a nice idea of the countryside I rode through - very pretty and isolated with good quality empty roads. The weather forecast was spot on for once and it rained like crazy all day yesterday with high winds, the roads in the city were mostly flooded and a few trees even came down, but today I wake to blue skies and I'm looking forward to leaving the city and heading to Samaipata about 3 hrs West of here where I have booked a two night stay at an animal refuge - should be interesting. But there is no wifi there so I'll be off the grid for a few days. One thing I forgot to mention earlier...... So pretty much none of the houses in South America are plumed for hot water, most sinks just have one tap and the only hot water is in the shower through those devices we jokingly call "suicide showers". They look dodgy as hell and almost all have terrible looking electrical connections involving electrical tape INSIDE the shower cubicle, I've even had fuse boxes inside the shower cubicle! Well I had never had a problem with them until the other day in my dodgy hotel up the road where I got a big whack from one. Not the full 220 Volts I think, as I know what that feels like, but enough of a jolt to wake me the hell up in the morning. Think I'll treat those buggers with a bit more suspicion from now on..... Other than that, all is good in central Bolivia!
