Beautiful Bolivia

Hats, hats and more hats! If only those sales ladies really would have let me take their photo?!? Can you see them?

Tiwanaku, the worlds second oldest civilization, existing almost 3000 years before the Incas

The sprawling Salar de Uyuni

White churches, public squares and kids playing soccer... Bolivia in a nutshell.

Yes, I am off again, for a mental health break from job searching. I've headed down south to Bolivia, tucked up in the Andes at 12,000 feet above sea level! Yes, that means I'm high up in the mountains! Its beautiful, traditional and oh so very alive. Bolivia has the largest indigenous population in Latin American with between 50-60% of its people having pure Indian blood. It makes for fascinating people watching. Its a country with even more hats!

Beautiful pictures! Not what I expected (the place, not that the pictures are beautiful).

The lunar landscape of Bolivia is a complete surprise. The pictures are stunningly still. The saturated colors are thrilling. And your commentary is fascinating. Thank You. JE M
