We loved the city of La Paz, Bolivia. We adored it so much that we went back about four times. You can read all about our first impressions of La Paz by clicking here. Our last two times in the city had us on a mission. One was to eat at the upscale restaurant, Gustu, owned by Noma Danish celebrity chef, Claus Meyer.
During our first trip to La Paz, we happened to pass by Diesel Nacional located in La Paz's Sopacachi district. Curious, we stopped to have a look. The facade looked very different than most bars or restaurants for anywhere, let alone Bolivia. For one, it was set far back with rocks scattered and old train tracks leading up to a revolving rusted door. Eerie spotlights cast shadows over industrial items like car/train/plane parts that had been strewn about. It certainly caught the eye.
Just another quick update. We put most of our photos from Bolivia & Peru. From BOLIVIA, you will find the photos from Lake Titicaca and La Paz (La Paz, Coroico, Copacabana & Isla del Sol), Central Highland (Cochabamba & Aiquile), the South Central (Sucre, Tarija & Rosilla) & the Southern Altiplano (Our tour to the Salar of Uyuni). And from PERU, you will find the photos from Lima, Cusco & the Sacred Valley (Cusco, Urubamba, The Salkantay Trek & Machu Picchu), the South Coast & Arequipa (Arequipa & Colca Canyon) & Lake Titicaca (LLachon). You can find all the best photos from Laurent on his Flickr gallery (Already available Uruguay, Argentina, Antarctica and Chile), the pictures from Bolivia & Peru will be available in December and January, stay tuned. You can also go and like his Facebook page L.L.P.. So if you are tired of reading, you can just look at the pictures! Click on the ‘photos’ tab and you can search by place. Enjoy!!!
If I told you there is a city that will give you a headache which causes slight dizziness, a place that leaves you (literally) gasping for air when climbing its many steps and that will also force you to risk life and limb (with said headache) running to cross its crazy streets. And in this same city you will have to be ultra-vigilant for scams aimed at tourists (yes, that means you and in this case, us!) you would probably say you would never want to visit that city.
