The La Paz Street Scene — A Slideshow   3 comments

Our first day in La Paz was one of trying to adjust to the altitude and hilly streets without being run over by people and vehicles — most of the streets a narrow and bustling with activity. You learn quickly to move slowly and take your time, which is very important at this altitude (11,942 ft). We started the day with coca teas and leaves while continuing to drinks plenty of water.  We were well aware that altitude sickness is not to be underestimated.

La Paz is a beautiful city with a lot of contrasts. There are markets everywhere. The following slideshow will provide a feel of what we experienced walking the street around our hotel.

  1. What a busy, busy place. I can see there is a great deal of poverty but everyone seems to have something to sell.
