La Paz, Bolivia (map)
Leaving from Copacabana (the original one :), Brazil copied) we headed to the highest capitol in the world; La Paz, Bolivia. We just so happened to arrive on the annual Pedestrian Day weekend. Each year La Paz closes down the streets to all traffic so that the people can enjoy their city; pretty impressive considering just how large that city is.
We also made a quick side trip from La Paz to visit the valley of the moon; Valle de la Luna. Unlike most national parks in the states this one was located just 6 miles outside of the city, but sadly due to urban sprawl it will probably soon be surrounded by civilization.
