The city of El Alto is spread over a broad area to the west of the canyon of La Paz, on the altiplano. The buildings are low - a limitation imposed by the airport. Life conditions on altiplano are less friendly than these down in La Paz. People in El Alto are poorer and feel discriminated by people in La Paz. However, government invests in education there, which may bring a positive change.
