A snippet of La Paz
In La Paz there are 1000’s of small minibus (we would fit 7 people in one of these here they have 12 or more) that go around the city on set routes. In each minibus there is a person (not included in the 12 passengers and driver) calling out where the minibus is going, as not all the people can read. It is not the same all over La Paz but on some of the main roads in central La Paz and El Alto about 98% of the traffic was filled with men or women leaning out of the window calling out where they were going. Imagine London’s roads full of black cabs with them on set routes heads out the window calling out where they are going.
