I’ve just spent the last few days in the tropical Chapare jungle in Bolivia. Coca production is one of the main forms of income for many families in this area. A couple of communities are breaking from that tradition and producing green and black tea. I’ve tasted what they’re producing and can say that it definitely matches any tea we’re used to in the U.K.. It’s totally organically produced and provides a reasonable income for many poor families in this area.
I’ve decided to try out a new format for sharing this Real Lives story post. You simply click on the first of the thumbnail pictures below and this will bring up a larger version of the photo, after that you use the arrow icons to move to the next photo and caption. Bolivia was a beautiful place and the people of Jatun Pampa were truly inspiring, here’s Don Esteban’s story.
PURE air, BEAUTIFUL scenery, INSPIRING people, just a few of the adjectives I used to describe my experiences in Bolivia. My faces of posts aren’t about words but simple images which speak of the people I meet on assignment. I hope you enjoy them.
