Mar de Plata

Martha Vasquez is a young campesina and Guarani dirigente in Santa Cruz. She became a good friend during the week. Spending time with her made me realise how much views of indigenous peoples and social movements are not heard in the Western highlands of Bolivia. She talked of frequently feeling isolated and was fed up by everyone from outside the country only associating Bolivia with llamas and mountains (not the lowlands she comes from)
