April - Bolivia.
La Paz. A group of Art Deco buildings in the centre of the city where Avenida
Camacho meets Avenida Mariscal Santa Cruz. The building on the left was designed
by a Yugoslavian architect Ivica Krusul and includes the Hotel La Paz. The building
on the right is the Edificio Club de La Paz.and now listed as part of the city's
architectural heritage. The work dates from the late 1930s into the 1940s. My
diary notes that my first night in Bolivia was spent in the Hotel La Paz - the
exact price is not stated but the Boliviano, the currency of that time was 33,000
to one Pound Sterling. One of the parked cars/ automobiles has a diplomatic plate
for the Yugoslavian embassy.
