Fun to walk around, a lot was closed unfortunatly but we had fun. Other markets in Bolivia are more lively. The view from the top to plaza the San Fransisco is cool. Get a juice from the passageway below, tasty and cheap!

One of my favorite things about South America is the abundance of juices, and Mercado Lanza did not disappoint. Papaya and milk is my favorite. If you're a tourist, make sure to ask for juice made with milk rather than water. There are lots of...More
