Photographer's Note

La Paz is one of the most spectacular cities I have seen in my travels. At an altitude of 3650m it is the worlds highest capital city, and also has the worlds highest airport. (4080m) Flying in at this altitude can (and did in my case) induce altitude sickness. Luckily the airport is well equipped with oxygen masks and wheel chairs. The one advantage of succumbing to altitude sickness is bypassing the long immigration queue. :)

I like this shot as it shows the immensity of La Paz. The city sprawl goes on and on for miles. This view is even better at night, although none of these shots came out.
