Learn more about Alejandra

Alejandra

Hey! My name is Alejandra, lived in 4 countries, I was working at a private bank in Paris and decided to leave all behind to be an entrepreneur at home (La Paz-Bolivia). I've been touring my friends for 5 years now and they had a blast so I wanted to show you why I left the most beautiful city for what it is to me the best city in the entire world. Every time I went back to France I used to buy Folkloric Bolivian art (silver and leather) to resell it in Paris. From best baby alpaca sweaters to hand made leather purses and silver jewellery.

What's included

Food
We will have a break and enjoy a typical paceño mid-morning snack.
