a bad car day

Yesterday on our trip to La Paz for supplies, we wrecked the uninsured hire car and had to bribe a policeman, twice. Cant mention the damaged car, except to say no one was hurt. The police stopped us for various imaginery transgressions and we thought we'd done okay negotiating down to $600pesos each time. I've since found out the going rate to make a policeman go away is $200 so we were ripped off. An expensive day. I did get a good shot of this cool building with trees growing through it though. And i found a potty - the highlight (and mathilda almost wee'd in it today, she tried, and missed, then slipped over in the puddle).
