Photographer's Note

This is a rather traditional postcard view of the Bolivian Altiplano.
It is however emblematic of the rare resources local people can rely upon : lamas, salt and some fields scattered with quinua plants.
This picture was taken from Coipasa in the direction of the "Cordillera Inter Salar" : the mountain range separating Coipasa from its southernmost brother salar called Uyuni. In the background is the sacred Thunupa volcano.
