The answer to last week’s question is. Q: One of the world’s capital cities spends far less (both in total and as a proportion of its budget) than other capital cities on a service which is usually considered absolutely essential. What city is this and why?
A: The city is La Paz, in Bolivia. It is the world’s highest Capital at almost 4000 metres above sea level. At this altitude there is far less oxygen and fires do not light so easily, as a result la Paz does not need to spend as much as other Capitals on its fire services.
