March - Bolivia. Near
the Aymara village of Irpachico on the Andean altiplano at 12,460 feet (3,800
metres). Irpachico was about 19 miles (30 kilometres) from the capital, La Paz
and people had gathered from nearby settlements for a fiesta to celebrate the
donation of school equipment and a playground. I followed the celebration shooting
movie film as the villagers headed for home. There was no way they were in danger
on this railway track as a train passed only three or four times a week.
