  2019...Coup d'État...or not... 

​During the end of October and the all month of November, the polarized country, divided
between Evo Morales supporters and the rest of the population, with opposition supporters

heading the movement, get to the streets. Then, it gets as a strange movie: everybody against everybody. Police go to mutiny and finally, the Army calm down everything to ensure a transition government while Morales flies away from the country.

Welcome to Saltydise...

Some stairs made of salt blocks, in the middle of nowhere and leading nowhere ... everyone poses for the photo. Then, they get down to make room for the next group. With cities like Tokyo, counting as 6,224.66 people living per square kilometer, Japanese tourists who come to see the Uyuni salt flat in Bolivia have something to feel off the planet with. Luxury hotels, specially cared food, once facing the indiscernible horizon, they are left in zero gravity. Then, your guide will bring you back to earth to entertain yourself to take photos in forced perspective, this strange local fashion phenomenon, a tourist "must see" and "must done".

Called now "Dark Times" /1997-2001: Embedded during

four years with Bolivian Jungle Narcotic Special Forces

Being integrated into the troops, embedded, is a very recent form of recovery by war correspondents. It can go back to 499-449 BC, during the wars between Greece and Persia, with Herodotus, historian present on "the ground", becoming one of the fathers of journalism, and in this case journalism in conflict situations armed.

In the 21st century, in 2003, 775 reporters and photographers were brought in by the US Army as integrants, during the invasion of Iraq...and so on...
