- my new Bolivia show
"Children of the Incas"
This page is still under construction. Here is a
little selection of my newest Bolivia pictures from 1999.
In a village near lake Titicaca I lived with the
Aymara Indians and slowly gained their trust. They are usually
extremely hostile to outsiders.

In the home of this woman one of the children laid
seriously sick, but she too refused to go to a doctor - one of the
reasons Danish Church Aid's huge hospital on the Altiplano is failing

It was an indescribable experience to walk with these
women on our way to a CARE-meeting one evening on the Altiplano.
