Short Of Breath In La Paz

Short Of Breath In La Paz

La Paz is clearly not on the list of my favorite cities but it offers some amazing views. The city is located in a small valley, its altitude spanning from 3000m to 4000m. From one side to another you’re only seeing a wall of small orange-brick houses. At night, this transforms in a beautiful wall of light.

You’ll definitely walk slowly as the altitude, the constant up and down hill and the pollution makes visiting the city a physical effort by itself. Anyway, there is nothing charming about the administrative capital of Bolivia and while some will stay for the party, you can move on quickly.
