Method to the Madness

Sometimes La Paz feels like an endless outdoor market. The seemingly chaotic set up is actually quite organized: there's a hardware sector, a garment district, a toy section (with a specific section for the trompo, a common wooden spinning top) and so much more.

Ah, the gemstones. It's not uncommon to see people selling them in touristic sectors of these South American cities.
