Bolivia – La Paz

La Paz

At over 3,500 metres above sea level, La Paz is one of the highest administrative capitals in the world and it takes some time to acclimatise to the altitude.

The valley is packed with so many dwellings it’s hard to see any spare land. The cobbled roads of the witches market are well worth a walk along, you are sure to find a potion with a Llama foetus involved!

A Cholita wrestling event takes place on a Sunday, and it’s a fun, if surreal event to watch.

The traditional Cholita dress includes a bowler hat and a colourful multilayered dress, this does not seem to impede their acrobatic prowess in the ring.

Men and women wrestle together to provide an entertaining event for the audience.
