We walked around town a bit in the morning while waiting for the bus departure. The scenery was once again amazing on the way back. We stopped at the ferry and were back at the La Paz cemetery district by 12:30 or so. We hailed a taxi at any price in the rain to take us back to our previous hotel to collecting our large bags that we left behind.

I went out alone to find my bike agency and arrange my tour for Wednesday. Cost was $72 all inclusive.

From the hotel we walked to the center of town and went inside some kind of market. Turns out it is basically a giant mall of commerce cubes, all built on weird sloped paths. I wasn't sure why someone would build 4 stories of sloped mall, but then again, the entire city of La Paz is sloped, it's probably natural to build it that way.

After the market, we wandered over toward Jaen street in the rain because it was on our map. There were some artsy museums, but nothing looked open so we left. At this point we made our way back to the hotel to just zone out for a while. Dinner was was at a Texas Steakhouse. Actually pretty good meat, if absurd service. I had the llama steak.
