A Snapshot of La Paz
La Paz is one of the largest and most prominent cities in Bolivia. Many indigenous people live in the adjacent city El Alto and commute into La Paz for work. Some residents of El Alto live in impoverished areas with houses made of mud and straw that are unsafe and increase the risk of health problems for residents.
