First day in La Paz

BOLIVIA | Friday, 15 August 2008 | Views [503]

Today was the first day in La Paz, and it started quite well for us. We went on a bus tour of the city in the morning and visited the Moon Valley. It is a weird place, it looks like a cave with the roof taken off!! It hasn't rained there for 50 years either!

We also visited all the main places in town and are looking forward to relaxing here for a few days.

4 people in our group decided to cycle down the worlds most dangerous road, and should´ve come back this evening for our final meal together before our group changes but we´ve just found our that one of the girls came off the bike and has severely broken her arm and hurt her face.

She needs an operation on her arm today and then needs to go back to England for further treatment, cutting her trip a month short.

We don't have too many details but hopefully she´ll be ok.
