La Paz, Bolivia
Entered Bolivia overland to find the country on the verge of industrial action, protests, and road blocks
Mani hot-footed it back to Peru, but we made it to La Paz before the road blocks without our guide.
Next day, spent 3rd wedding anniversary walking around town.
Witches Market – potions, voodoo dolls, dead frogs and llama foetuses
Black Market – poor quality designer rip-offs,
San Pedro Jail – too afraid to go on illegal inmate tour
and Protests over a recent hike in fuel prices.
We were told the miners from the south had started marching to join the protest armed with dynamite, and that all roads out of La Paz had been blockaded.
With the city on lock down, new guide Yannick briefed us on plans A,B,C,D and E, about how we would break out of La Paz, to continue our tour to the Salt Flats of Uyuni.
