After a long overnight bus/train trip we arrived in the highest capital city in the world, La Paz.

                                                  la paz city
How can we describe La Paz ??????.......................a giant market with thousands of mini vans screaming out their destinations ( at least we think thats what they were screaming !!) Itīs a cool place especially at night , where you can buy anything including that shrunken llama foetus youīve always wanted! We had planned to leave early the next morning for Copacabana but the bus was full so we had to wait till 3 pm . As luck would have it the bus stop was right next door to La Paz cemetery and it just happened to be All Saints day. Markets everywhere, music and of course funerals. Itīs such an Honor to be buried in this day that it is more of a celebration than a sad occasion and we were welcome to join one particular funeral. It was so interesting but you will have to take our word for it because out of respect we didnīt take any photoīs   ..sorry!!!
