This week’s mystery city is La Paz, which was the top choice of readers with 44% of votes cast. La Paz is the administrative capital of Bolivia. The second choice was Maracaibo in the northwestern Venezuelan state of Zulia with 21% while Boa Vista, Roraima, in Brazil was in third place with voters with 15%.

We will have next Mystery City #6 on Tuesday from Luis’ collection of cities in 45 countries. Previous Mystery Cities were Caracas, Valaparaiso,  Sydney and Bratislava.

  1. See http://www.vanderkrogt.net/statues/object.php?webpage=LE&record=bo001. The second postcard under “This monument on postcards” is essentially the same view 70 years ago (a little bit lower to the ground); the Hotel Sucre is still recognizable in today’s shot.

  3. Next week’s city is going to have to be more difficult. Some of you are very good at this. Thanks!

  4. Nah, that one took me 2+ hours to get the positive ID (psst! Don’t tell my boss). Your puzzles are incredibly addictive – thank you for running them!
