La Paz

An Unremarkable Stay in the Highest Capital City in the World

Danny and I debated whether or not to put a post on La Paz mainly because there really isn't much to say about this city. Compared to all the other South American cities we have been to, La Paz doesn't really quite stand out (we now understand why so many people we met opted to skip through La Paz and head straight to Uyuni). I guess unless you were planning on biking Death Road or climbing any of the 20,000 ft peaks nearby (which we weren't interested in doing on this trip), there really isn't much appeal to staying in La Paz haha.

We ended up spending 3 days in La Paz (but that was only because we couldn't get a bus out) and managed to book a tour of the salt flats, as well as all our transfers through Bolivia to Argentina.
