Thanks Kumar, its la Paz in Bolivia which is one of the most impressive locations for a city I have ever seen. This lovely peak Illimani is seen from the city centre. I loved la Paz, except for when it came to crossing the street, which is an adrenaline sport as dangerous as base jumping.

:) can well imagine ... street-crossings (and even driving as such) in urban India can at times (and at places) can be absolutely nightmarish.

Hardly ever seen such dramatic sky adding so much to the visual appeal in an urban setting. Most of the times we yearn for merely blue skies ... and look at THIS  :lol:

La Paz is a great place, especially the market area. We got stuck there for a couple of additional days during the general elections as no-one was allowed to travel.
