Afro-Bolivian culture

Afro-Bolivian culture

In today’s Bolivia, most of the communities of Afro-descendants are located in the yungas or warm valleys to the east of La Paz department, not far from the capital city. In a semi-tropical land, which is accessed by a complicated (and beautiful) road that twists and turns in a sea of clouds, Afro-Bolivians have managed to retain a few traces of their identity.

The Flickr album "Una mirada a los Yungas" (A look at the Yungas), published by the U.S. embassy in Bolivia, gathers together a collection of photographs (which has been uploaded to other websites) about Afro Bolivian people and their community life.
