Maybe the most important advice:

take care with sorroche (illness because of altitude) . Drink "mate de coca" (Coca tea), don´t worry...or don´t be dissapointed :-), the tea doesn´t make "high". or ask in farmacies for help, there are a lot of medicaments against.

    EL, I never realized the Paramount mountain was Illimani. Thanks for the tip. I liked Plaza Murillo too. Hey, come to New Mexico. We have "moonscapes" also.

    thanx for the nice pictures of La Paz. And yes altitude illness is really an issue. At an altitude of 11,495 feet, this is the highest capital city in the world.
