LA PAZ

Written on: Monday July 7th, 2008

In la paz we went down the Famous Most Dangerous road in the world, more people have died on this road than any other single road (well thats the impression I get, please note this is a made up fact and may or may not be true) Its steep at points and windy and narrow and cars used to go both ways.. We had a 70k downhill over a couple of hours, 50ks dirt roads. Dropping from the cold 4700meter ASL to 1100 meters...
It was amazing fun! A must if ur in La Paz.
Of course just going fast wasnt enough for me, Bunny hops and at one point a fast powerslide into one of the corners (Note: Mam, one of the ones toward the walls, not the cliff edge, so all good).. I was going too fast, the front wheel locked and there was a painless but dramatic crash. Entertainment for those behind me. And for once I had a tour guide to fix my puncture.
Sure beats doing it yourself!
