Title:

Sajama National Park and Volcano, Bolivia.

Caption:

Life is hard on the Bolivian Altiplano. Little grows in the world's highest desert. Quinoa (of the millet family), barley, and sometimes potatoes make up the better part of their diet. People raise llamas and alpacas for the wool and meat. Houses are made of adobe, a mixture of mud and straw which is packed by foot, cut into blocks then left to dry for weeks. Here this Aymara man pounds the adobe with his feet. Behind him is the Sajama Volcano, highest mountain in Bolivia at 6,530m (over 20,000 feet).
