Lagunas was the first village in Bolivia along the road from Arica in Chile (if you discount the scrappy border post settlement). The village seemed deserted other than a couple of boys who ran along a parallel street to watch my progress at each cross street. I parked my bicycle against the whitewashed church enclosure. By the time I’d taken this picture a little girl appeared at the gate and ushered me in. Her mother unlocked the church and gave me a tour. The church was typical of the Altiplano style.
Just outside the village was an amazing vista of Sajama, Bolivia’s highest mountain. And to the west the border with Chile is defined by volcanoes.
