It's a great Andean country, vast 3 times and a half Italy, but lived alone 8 million people (8 abs / kmq), very poor, but fascinating.
Tall peaks Andean (the Illimani overcomes 6.400 meters msl) and great arid salty lake basins (the salars) characterize a bare and very characteristic landscape, punctuated of small pueblos and from flocks of blade.
The political capital La Paz, is the greatest and important city of the country and also the most dangerous, posts in a deep valley with thousand of hovels that climb up to 4.000 meters altitude and with the immense suburb of El Alto, receptacle of desperate that run away from the poor countries.
The legal capital Sucre is a clean town, monumental, white, calm and some colorless.
