I haven't really noticed it in the altiplano, but in the the lowlands area of Bolivia nearly every shop, office as well as some houses feature a topless or scantily clad woman on a calendar or poster. It seems very normal here, not reserved for male hang-outs like mechanic's workshops. In this photo taken of the carpenter's house, I liked the conjunction of the traditional wooding carving with the topless calendar in the background.
