This is the mining district in Bolivia. Principal town Oruru. The picture taken in Huanuni on the road towards Catavi, llallagua and the Siglo XX mine. Mining in Bolivia is on the uprise again as the mineral prices world-wide are increasing. The big lithium reserves is also a big asset.. think electric cars!
Revolutions in Bolivia have been initiated from these parts of the country. Working and living conditions are about as bad as it gets!
