Bolivia – It remains the continent’s least populated country. It’s the forgotten jewel of South America, its geographical, cultural and energetic center. Oblivion and underdevelopment -burdens that have forced half of the Bolivians to live outside their country- has its curious advantages. Ecologically speaking, Bolivia is one of the least devastated and exploited countries in the world. It preserves 85% of its original vegetation coverage.
