First View of La Paz

We left Puno by bus and headed to the border of Bolivia.  The border is a busy place with vendors, human-power tuk tuk's, money changers, and commerce of all sorts.  We walked across the border, then boarded a new bus for La Paz.

On the way into La Paz we passed this statue of Che Guevara, made all of recycled metals.

These photos don't do justice to the spectacular view coming into La Paz.  It is absolutely breathtaking.  La Paz sits in a bowl, surrounded by the high peaks of the Andes.  Fantastic!

From some perspectives, La Paz looks like a city built of Legos.
