We’re swinging in a cable car high above La Paz, one of the highest cities in the world. It’s an awesome feeling. Below us we can see the curving roads, the cramped buildings, some perched precariously on the edge of cliffs, and the surrounding arid craggy landscape.
At 3650 metres above sea level, La Paz is high, very high. The city sits in the caldera of a volcano giving it an otherworldly feel, a crammed city of more than 215,000 people. It’s chaotic, it’s intriguing, it’s interesting, it’s quite simply awesome!
