Photographer's Note

This photo was taken around Puno, when we stopped by a farmer's house for a visit. There are several farmers house on the way from Puno to the archeological site Sillustani that we went to see. We stopped on the way back and actually it was the tour operator who decides were they will stop.

As you can imagine the families expect that the tour bus will stop at their farm and the tourist would buy something from their farm. I suppose they also get a 'small' contribution from the tour operators.

As we all know those families profit very little from the tourism... but they still have a hope... to be able to live a better life

I wonder if the boy is wondering if his family would be able to earn something... or he was simply curious looking at the tourist....

It wasn't very warm... so can see that from the dry and reddish skin of the boy.
