I’m in my final week as a resident of La Paz, Bolivia, and very sad to be saying goodbye. By way of tribute, I want to share some of my favorite things about life in this amazing city. My hope is that this will be the first of a post per day before I leave. Enjoy!
#1 The Vistas
La Paz and the surrounding area are filled with breathtaking views. I’ll miss:
looking out my window, across the city, to see the mountains beyond and the bluest sky;
the snaggle-tooth formation of la muela del diablo;
the otherworldly rock formations of Valle de la Luna and on the slopes all around;
the blanket of city lights covering the slopes at night;
and, of course, Illimani, the emblematic mountain that stands watch over La Paz.
