Women selling


I’m sitting with women who come down each day to La Paz from El Alto, which is the fast-growing town 1500 feet up at the top of the canyon above La Paz. I talk to one and I understand her question: “Why would rich people want to come to Bolivia and take pictures of poor people? Do they sell these pictures? Do they show them to their families? Then all the people in your countries will think that we are just poor.”
