A Sunday trip to Achocalla was a full day. Just a few miles past the golf course in La Paz toward the altiplano brought you to beautiful valleys along the side of the mountain. The lake was shallow and the families swam and took boat rides. There were assorted restaurants serving parrillada (mixed grill), sandwiches, desserts and drinks. There were several businesses offering horseback riding as well. Our children rode the horses and we enjoyed relaxing on the patio and eating outside. This painting is for sale, framed in a Bolivian wooden frame. This painting was burned in our home when it was lost in the big fire in Bastrop, Texas, in September, 2011.
