Tiwanaku Wall: Pre inca civilization established in the South of Peru, East of Bolivia and north of Chile. Since they didn’t leave anything written, their rise and fall are still a mistery to archeologists.
La Paz: caos and inequality side by side
La Paz: The highest capital in the world could actually have been higher if the Spanish would have stayed in Laja, a bit higher on altitude. But the Spanish were cold, so they moved it to the Chuquiago Marka Valley.
The death road: Bapthised by the IDB as world’s most dangerous road. One lane of only 3m wide and with incredible drop offs (starts at 4.650m and finishes at 1.200 m altitude in only 61 km) it is said to kill over 300 people a year.
Miners chewing coca leaves: Chewing around 40 to 80 coca leaves at the time, miners get the energy they need to stay underground for about 12 hours a day without eating, looking for silver or copper.
Cerro Rico: There is no square, street or alley in Potosi where you can hide from its greedy eyes.
Ghost Town: Whit the disappearance of the train, Julauca, traditionally a stop over for business men and farmers of the area, gradually started disappearing. Until it was empty.
Laguna Ramaditas: The clearest water reflects the volcano and the sky
Uyuni Salt Lake: Road to heaven
Salar de Uyuni: No image manipulation. During the rainy season the salar (12.000 square meter of salt) gets covered by a thin layer of water. It is enough to reflect the sky, and feel as if you were flying.
Colorful Lllama: Families “customize” their llamas, that run freely on the mountain, to regnize them easily.
Laguna Hedionda: smelly and stinky lagoon, Bolivia
Laguna Colorada (Red Lagoon): Flamingoes chilling at more than 4.000 m altitude, reddish and salted waters; this unrealistic landscape could be the dream of a kindergarden drawing class.

Geysers Sol de Manana: Again geyshers, this time in Bolivia. It is not hard to understand as they are alligned with El Tatio, Chile. Altitude: 4.870m, heat:200º C
On the road: Dust, heavy rains and the feeling of being a small spot on the inmense nature.
