High up here is the perfect spot for a sunset or some stargazing. Just be careful at night- there have been reports of muggings around here. We were nearly attacked by a dog, but at least my tripod was there for protection.

I heard so much negative in regards to La Paz from other travelers we met on the road. Yeah, government protests, road blockades, the dust, and the pollution all can get annoying- but views like this certainly make up for it. Make sure to catch a ride up La Paz’s Mi Teleferico at sunset for a lovely sunset over this high altitude mountain valley.

There’s so much more to Bolivia and I feel like we barely scratched the surface in our short time there. Of course, I want to re-visit during the wet season to get a glimpse at that salt flat as a giant mirror and see the other areas I didn’t quite have the time for!
