The Photo Review of 2015

Wild Bolivia

We, Btina aka GreenTina and I have been exploring Bolivia for a little more than 90 days now. It’s located in the center of South America. Bordered by Brazil to the east, Paraguay and Argentina to the west and Chile and Peru to the north. Bolivia hosts the encounter of South America’s three most important macro regions, which are the Andes, the Amazon and the Chaco. It remains the continent’s least populated country. It’s the forgotten jewel of South America, its geographical, cultural and energetic center.
