Want something marvelous? Travelling to Bolivia can make you see women with magician hats and very big skirts, amazing landscapes, countryside farms, shamans and witch crafts.
Bolivia is a country of the contrasts. As beautiful as its landscapes are, from the Amazonian jungles up to the Andes peaks, from the most dangerous road in the world to the spectacular Valley of the Moon located near La Paz, from the salt sea from Salar de Uyuni to the gardens that are located on the Island of the Sun, so poor are the Bolivian people. Most of them are happy if they have in their gardens a lama for milk and one for wool.
From the shore, the Titicaca Lake does not seem so great. Just standing in a boat or one of its small islands you can make an opinion about its gigantic proportions. Surrounded by the snow covered mountains and icebergs, this lake is situated at 3827 meters above the sea level. Ever since two millenniums now, it plays an important role in the Andes people’s belief.
If you enter into a bar you will seize the rustic feeling inside it and feel the unique feeling when looking outside and seeing the blue lake. Here you can drink a traditional cocoa tea and you can as well see in every shop cocoa candies. They have a green color and they have almost the same effect as the green tea. The locals recommend it if you have height fear, but its effects have never been proved so far.
La Paz is the capital, which is located at the highest altitude in the world. Despite of this, the city is incredibly picturesque and it has both residential areas as well as areas where people are very poor and they live in a filthy environment. The Witches Square is one of the most visited places in La Paz. It is the place where all the potions and the magic sayings can be found.
