TheĀ Iglesia de San Francisco, San Francisco Church (in my opinion) is the most beautiful church in La Paz, Bolivia. This Iglesia de San Francisco was constructed in 1548. It was collapsed in 1610 and was reconstructed in 1784. This church is a great reference of baroque-mestizo architecture in Bolivia.


Caperucita Roja

That day, in December 2011, I had something to be fixed at Consulate General Office, at Plaza Murillo , La Paz, Bolivia. It was summer time, but the day temperature was too low for that time. It was 5 deg C! Indeed, it was the coldest summer I ever had. The day was bright and beautiful. I could imagine what this Caperucita Roja, girl in red, was thinking about all that day.
