Everyday life in La Paz

After my first day in La Paz, I realized that the next four weeks were going to be much different than what I was used to and that in order to adjust, I would need to be open to change. For starters, I found myself constantly out of breath, dizzy, and tired due to the altitude change (3,640 m/11,942 ft compared to 27 m/89 ft.) Luckily there was a remedy for this, te de mate.

After walking around the city with my host mom, I noticed the streets constantly being hilly with an adorable homeless dog at every corner and a women with a bowler hat selling fruits on every sidewalk.
