cloudless on the altiplano: while some latin american cities have amazing cultural heritage and others a blessed sea-side location, it is la paz, that takes my breath away. every time i return. la paz/el alto, the highest capital in the world is also the only city that spreads over nearly 1000m of altitude reaching from about 3100m.as.l. to more than 4000. nowadays it is possible to go conveniently up- and downhill in a cable car. illimani (6439m) dominates the horizon.

out of the blue... ...and into the silver. 
boats crossing lago de titicaca in the late afternoon sun. lago de titicaca, distributed between peru and bolivia is the highest navigable lake on the planet and a place of special energy. isla del sol in the background.

andean life: going to offices in the peruvian highlands often means several hours of queuing up. better bring a snack!

el dorado helado: la rinconada, the highest town on earth at 5100m situated on the foot of ananea chico glacier. established by gold 🥇💰miners who have been digging countless holes through the ice into the rock, it is one of the most inhospitable places on earth: the climate is arctic with an annual average of just 1^C ❄️, the soil is contaminated with mercury ☠️ so the people have to collect water from melting the glacier, the life is basically lawless as the government does not want to send much police and there is hardly any community service to remove the ever increasing heaps of garbage. untimely death 💀 is a common feature of la rinconada. and yet, the friendliness of the locals, the smiles of the pupils in the highest elementary schools of the planet and the human ability to conquer the most hostile environments when just following a dream left a deep impression in me. 
where there is life, there is hope.

la garganta del diablo: cerro de pasco, the second highest real city in the world (70,000 inhabitants) sits on top of an andean plateau at 4330 m.a.s.l. it is an important mining center after silver was discovered there already in 1630. if the miners keep extending the big mouth in the city center which already spans around 3 km, it might eat the whole city one day... 😬
