BOLIVIA: Nuestra Señora de La Paz – Highest seat of government

On our route from Buenos Aires to the Titicaca lake in Bolivia we passed La Paz. With 750.000 habitants it´s the third biggest city in the country and the domicile of the government, the capital is Sucre. The town is constructed on an altitude between 3200 and 4100 meters into the mountains and you definitly can feel the thin air. But to get a better view you have to climb even higher on the hills and therefore you will get rewarded with a fabulous outlook. The architecture of the squeezed brick buildings extend as far as you can see.
