military expeditions. The church's organization, personnel, and role in society were all defined early in the colonial era. Pope Julius III created the La Plata bishopric in 1552; this was followed by those of La Paz and Santa Cruz (Santa Cruz de la Sierra) early in the seventeenth century. A plethora of religious orders — Franciscans, Mercedarians, Dominicans (Dominican Order), and Jesuits were the most prominent — joined diocesan priests

driving style

Copacabana) is pushing it a bit in terms of time. Another popular daytrip is the bike ride down the world's most dangerous road, North Yungas Road (a.k.a. '''Death Road'''). It's a 64 km long scenic ride downhill to Coroico. There was an average of 100 motor fatalities a year (though in the ten years that companies have been biking down the road, there have only been 12 biking fatalities), a world record, mostly due to the Bolivian driving style than to the road itself. Although it's a narrow, winding road with big drops on the side, going down by bike is probably the safest way to get to Coroico and there are several tour agents in La Paz offering the trip. For a safer and more relaxed trip to Yungas, you may want to take the South Yungas Road that leads to Chulumani by bus. Around 36 km up the South Yungas Road you will find a surprise: a European castle, built in the 1930s, emerges in the middle of the coca and flower growing region. It´s a treat because the people who run the castle hotel have built many narrow roads for hiking through mountains and mountain cascades. Much calmer and relaxing than Coroico. The hotel is called the Hotel y Parque Ecologico el Castillo del Loro. For spectacular mountain views, native cloud forests and exploration hiking, take a 5 hour bus minivan trip to Quime. This is off the La Paz to Oruro Road. Commons:Category:La Paz Wikipedia:La Paz, Bolivia

of thousands of protesters marched into La Paz. Aware of his growing incapacity to control or influence events without resorting to violence, Mesa once more tendered his resignation to Congress. This time, Congress accepted his offer.
