Travelblog for Tom and Julia's two-month long trip of South America. Photos, thoughts, and ponies.

These are some pictures from the San Telmo Antiques Fair, which is held every Sunday. This is, of course, only a tiny sample of the amazing stuff they had there. The glassware in particular was gorgeous - hundreds of vintage soda siphons. I desperately wanted one, but wasn’t sure it would make the trip back.

There were also a lot of vintage fur coats. Seriously stunning.

The lake is gorgeous, and the town is a lot more relaxed than La Paz, which was quite exhausting. Unfortunately, due to food poisoning we were unable to visit the cathedral, which is supposed to be stunning. Still, it was a nice break from La Paz.

Cusco conveniently made some Pinkie Pie-sized versions of some of their sights. Good work, Cusco!

We genuinely could not work out what this was.
