DIAS ESPECIALES EN LA PAZ
En Octubre de cada año se realiza una competencia ciclística en la zona de los Yungas de La Paz denominado Yolosa – La Cumbre al cual asistí los pasados 2 años. Con mucho entusiasmo, Fabrizio (mi hijo) y Felipe (mi nieto, 11 años) se anotaron para acompañarme a mi tercera competencia. El programa …
I woke up feeling rather itchy, and on closer inspection discovered about 20 bites all over my body. This was strange because I was sleeping under a mosquito net and the sheet.

Today Evan and I went our separate ways.

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Gloria La Paz
Rooms are vey tiny. Heating controlled centrally and is way too hot for comfort and the pipes must run under the floor so the floor is hot too.
