Pedestrian day in La Paz

Once a year, La Paz has a ‘pedestrian day’. Cars are banned (although not non-existent) and everyone takes to the streets to enjoy not risking their life when crossing the road. Although not as quiet as census day (when no-one is allowed out of their house), it is a lot more relaxed and quiet than the normal pace of La Paz.

This video was made by my super cool landlord, filming from the building where we live. If you like the music, also check out San Pedro Estudios.

  1. What a great idea! Wish it was happening on Thursday on our return to La Paz. Guess I will have to deal with risking my life every time I cross the street again! Love that city but I cannot get used to crossing its streets.
