La Paz, Bolivia is a really busy, frenetic place. The streets are full of people, buses, cars, and it’s rarely quiet — even late at night. However, I have often found that very early the morning — around sunrise — even busy cities can be quiet. I had wanted to take some photos of the city as it woke up, and so one morning I walked the centro of the city, taking photos as I went.
Calle Jaen is one of La Paz’s most well-preserved colonial streets, with homes dating to the 18th century. The street is normally very busy, but early in the morning, it was quiet.
