Just had a few days resting in La Paz; highest capital in the World. Got to look around the Coca museum and drink a few coca tea´s - helps a bit with the altitude.
I´ve actually been at higher altitudes but the streets are very hilly here and it takes a while to get around.
La paz seems to be the place where I caught up with people I´d seen before. Had been travelling with 5 other people for a couple of days but also met the 3 people I went to Machu Picchu with and a Canadian guy who I met in Quito.
Off to Uyuni for the Salt Plains next. Should get some interesting photos...
p.s. Vic H.; here is the photo of me "hugging a Llama" (as requested).
