We arrived in La Paz and checked into another Loki hostel and headed out to explore the city and, arrange a couple of trips and buy some supplies. Our first and lasting impression of La Paz is a big dirty sprawling city, but it is a major transport hub in Bolivia and and the place from where you can cycle the world famous DEATH ROAD, the worlds most dangerous road.
