San Francisco El Alto is indeed high, located on a hilltop at some 2600 m. It is a small town, not particularly interesting – until Friday! Friday is market day, creating the what is claimed by some to be the biggest market in Central America. The town is flooded with village people from far into the surroundings, trading everything from animals and textiles to fruit and vegetables, pottery and whatever you can think of. They, in turn, have to eat and drink, for which a whole industry of foodstalls has been created. Great place to wonder around, and take pictures!
