Scenes From the Border, From the City

This is how we roll in Puno, Peru.

Bus station (really just an intersection) in Desaguadero, Bolivia, at the border with Peru.
(I'm trying to figure out if the term "cholita" is pejorative or not; anyone have any ideas?)

First day in La Paz, I stumbled across the presidential residence. The guards made me walk across the street, but were OK with me taking a picture of Evo's house. Being an estadounidense--whom Bolivians are naturally wary of, due to the drug war--I was surprised that they were so laid back.
