Need a little help buying a car in La Paz, Bolivia
(La Paz, Bolivia)
Me and a friend - I'm on the left!
Hi everyone! I'm new to Bolivia, but it's clear that it's a gorgeous country! I am trying to buy a used car here in La Paz, which I know carries various risks (stolen cars, etc.). I've done a lot of research into buying a car here, so I understand it can be expensive and complicated.
What I don't have is good Spanish! I am learning, but unfortunately I'm not that advanced yet! I was hoping for any advice, contacts or assistance with the Spanish side of things (just choosing the actual car!) so that I don't get ripped off. If anybody has any tips, or knows anyone who would be willing to help me (maybe in exchange for a 6-pack of beers??), it would be very much appreciated.
Once I have a car, I will be looking to travel around Bolivia, improve my Spanish, and then either hang around to work or move north to Ecuador to volunteer with refugees in Quito.
