Bolivia

Arriving to La Paz by land is quite an experience. La Paz is in a valley, and it overflowed the valley into the altiplano. In South America, the outskirts of the big cities are very poor. The peasants coming from the countryside looking for jobs settle there. So, your first contact with La Paz is quite shocking, as you see the exteme poverty of the people who live there.
