  • A visit to La Paz can be focused in gastronomy since the city is one of the most representative of the bolivian gastronomy. Starting in the popular Lanza Market, where we can enjoy local food as "sándwich de chorizo" (sausage sandwich), el anticucho (cow's heart kebabs), "salteña" (a bolivian empanada); till sophisticated restaurants that are revolutionizing South American cuisine such as: Gustu (founded by Claus Meyer, of Noma restaurant, in Copenhague), Ali Pacha (vegan food) y Manqa.
  • Visit to the city of El Alto, a young, chaotic and shocking city, which has the fastest growing along with Santa Cruz. It has a majority population of Aymara migrants, who meet the "amautas" (fortune readers) to learn about their future and love to express their culture through a type of Andean architecture original to the city of El Alto, where this urban mansions (commonly called "Cholets") have a completely different and flamboyant architecture; the designs, inspired by pop culture icons such as "Mickey Mouse", "Star Wars", "Transformers" are a clear sample of the great desire of this population to open up to a global culture while preserving the essence of its history.
