A typical Bolivian day out A zoo is an interesting phenomenon. It essentially provides an opportunity to watch animals doing what they would never do in normal circumstances, eating out of bowls, pacing enclosures, looking bored as hell. What was currently interesting me was a bear trying to figure out how to drink a bottle of Coke. You may be wondering what a zoo is doing in an article about the Valley of the Moon. I was wondering what a zoo was doing there as well.
One of the closest attractions to La Paz, Valle de la Luna is an eerie stretch of badlands that resemble a lunar landscape. Deep canyons open up to a strange vista of clay and rock, with cactus plants clinging to dry pinnacles carved and moulded by seasonal wind and rain.
