La Paz is Bolivia’s third most-populous city, the seat of the country’s government and the capital of La Paz Department. The city sits in a bowl surrounded by the high mountains of the altiplano. As it grew, the city of La Paz climbed the hills, resulting in varying elevations from 3,200 to 4,100 m (10,500 to 13,500 ft). It is a beautiful site from above, though the city below leaves something to be desired. In all fairness, I did not stay in the best of areas, though did find a wonderful cafe that proved to be a near daily haunt.
