La Paz

Rest, recuperation and acclimatisation

sunny 13 °C

We arrived in Bolivia, ready for some relaxation and at over 3500m above sea level, we needed to take it easy for a few days to get used to the altitude. We spent our first 4 days in La Paz, eating, resting, planning (oh the dreaded planning, how we hate you) and eating some more. With 3 course lunches at around $2 we were eating well, which made Matt very happy, and they became the centrepiece of each of our days. The location of the city is pretty spectacular, turning a corner to look up at the steep slope of the crater in which its nestled is pretty amazing. The sight of the city at night was just magical, gold and silver lights sparkling, really beautiful. On our overnight bus to Uyuni to do the Salt flats/national park, the moon was rising over the lip of the crater as we drove out, so beautiful. It will definitely stay in my mind as one of the most beautiful sights I´ve ever seen.
