nice view, the broken windows created some graphism.
the image has an interesting meaning for me, the truck in ruins is a symbol of the wrong way bolivia is taking. I don't believe in people who use populism like a tool to improve things in a country.

Talking To jmdias: Vota por Evo

Hi Jorge,

We will probably have to agree to disagree on politics, while continuing to admire each others photographs.

Not convinced that Evo Morales is a 'populist' in the same sense as, say, Chavez in Venezuela, or the Peronistas here in Argentina. I would compare him more to a politician such as Lula da Silva in your own country. Both were elected as old-fashioned socialist/labour candidates and both have brought some fairly solid (and at times surprising) economic gains to their respective countries. I certainly won't lecture you on Brasil's status as a growing economic powerhouse, but you may not be aware that Bolivia has averaged 5% economic growth per year since Evo first was elected president - their best growth since over thirty years ago.

Don't worry, Jorge, you are not expected to agree with me Nothing wrong with some healthy political differences.

Un abrazo, Iain
