Between Andes and the Amazonian Rainforests: MyGreatWorld's open, fast & free photo-community for Bolivia
Just a couple of days after MyGreatWorld.com opened up Belgium to the community now Bolivia fills one of the few remaining gaps in the worldmap of MyGreatWorld.
Even though rich in natural resources Bolivia struggles hard to find its place in the centre of South America, being more famous for major archeological monuments than for the vast amounts of iron, magnesium or natural gas. Outstanding ruins from pre-columbian cultures and famous mines already known by the Incas are only the creamy top of the highlights waiting to be discovered by visitors.
Bolivia is world-famous for its varied and distinctive folklore with some of the annual regional carnivals being No. 1 events in South-America.
Geographically Bolivia offers a surprising variety of different landscapes. Within the Andes and Altiplano about 80% of Bolivia's population lives today but Llanos and Yungas, too, offer a compelling background for inspiring captures.
Whatever the reason for a visit to Bolivia, photos & information from residents and those who know the spot are always welcome, both, to make the best out of a trip and not to miss the secret beauty every location holds: What's worth visiting in El Alto? Where to stay in La Paz? What to do in Oruro? What to avoid on Cochabamba? Users may depict their recommendations on MyGreatBolivia.com - For tourists. For residents. For friends. Worldwide.
