Saya: Dance and Survival in an Afro-Bolivian Village
In the heartland of Bolivia, slavery and liberation are matters of living memory. African descendants worked as slaves until 1952, when slavery was abolished. Despite their being in the area for over 500 years, the national census doesn’t acknowledge their existence. They struggle for cultural survival maintaining their identity when they perform the “Saya” a dance rooted in their African heritage.

Chuño con Huevo
This is one of Bolivia’s (and Peru’s) traditional dishes. It looks very unappetizing but it’s actually not bad at all - it has a very simple savoury flavour .The black chunks are pieces of black Chuño, a type of potato which is freeze-dried and used by the Quechua (and Aymara) communities which is scrambled with egg. Chuño was traditionally freeze-dried for storage purposes by exposing it to the extreme low temperatures and high sunlight of the Andean Antiplano
