Nuestra Señora de La Paz, seen from above…

07 Feb


A few snapshots of the capital of Bolivia [Plurinational State of Bolivia], the city of ‘Nuestra Señora de La Paz‘, and we’re looking at a population of over 800 thousand people, just in La Paz. 

The average elevation of the city, Bolivia is 3,829 meters – making one wonder about how we find a way to adjust to ‘life in the high altitude‘… But we do, and we’re currently loving it!


These are photo shots taken from El Alto, just outside the city, overlooking what seems to be a ‘toy city’, where houses and buildings resemble ‘building blocks’… Above we have, La Paz, during the day, and a snapshot of the city, at night, below. Enjoy! 😮

    It certainly does look like lego in some of your photos, but lego with the wow factor!

      Thanks, Gilly! It makes the city look so small, despite being such a large and populated area… The advantages of being high above, for the shot! 😮 Thanks for checking it out!
