Arrived into famous Wild Rover hostel at about 8.30am. My room wasn’t ready so I went upstairs for the bread and jam breakfast 😦 I booked into the death Road for the next day and met some English girls and we decided to do the walking tour at 10.
Red cap walking tour was really good and only B20. Good way to see the city ad the markets and get the history. After the tour we went to the very old and outdated coca museum bit itvwas actually kindof interesting.
Back to the hostel then to check in and eat, food in the hostel bar is really good! Took advantage of the happy hour for an hour then bed early for death Road the next morning!
Death Road was an early start and long day but so so worth it!! I went with Altitude and they were brilliant!! We started off cycling down snow capped mountains and ended up in roasting jungle surroundings. The road was scary and bumpy but that just added to it and we had plenty of breaks to give our arms and hands a break.
It was an unbelievable experience and one I won’t forget in a hurry!
Back to the hostel after to celebrate.The hostel is great fun and the staff are so nice, such a good place for a solo traveller! Out for Mexican that night, La Paz isn’t great for the local food.
Next day we went on the cable cars which were really cool and such an easy way to see the city (especially if your hungover!) and they’re dirt cheap!
Had a stroll around the freaky witches market with all the lama carcasses hanging off the stalls.
Back to the hostel then for more socialising, be rude not to! 😉
The next day I was very tired and fragile but I still made it to the flea market on the red cable car line. We had a stroll around its basically a big car boot sale.
Cool to see. Didn’t last too long in the crowds,back to the hostel to pack and rest before my early Bolivia hop bus to Copacabana. Just heard about Bolivia hop feels like I’m cheating a bit but wasn’t expensive so going to see what it’s like. So sad leaving La Paz,made such good friends here was very tempted to work here. Wish I had more time 😦
