Bienvenida La Paz

We’ve made it to La Paz with the most breathtaking views from the plane as we landed. 


Met a lovely taxi driver who told us all about the local delicacies (soup with chicken and pork, empanadas, chillies in rice) where the best produce markets are (Al Alto if you’re interested?) took us through the market so we could see what it was all about, then we began the road descent into La Paz from the airport (highest in the world at 12,000ft!). 
 Wow!! What a view! The city is gigantic he said it is home to  over 5 million people and it certainly looked massive. 
We’ve got to and settled in the appartment and it is absolutely lovely. Brand new build and in a safe area. We’ve already been to the local shops and got out of breath carrying the bits back up the hill! Perhaps we’ll get super fit living on the side of a steep hill with no oxygen!
