Open Veins of Latin America

“Open Veins of Latin America” as Eduardo Galeano used to describe in his book… »Our defeat was always implicit in the victory of others; our wealth has always generated our poverty by nourishing the prosperity of others - the empires and their native overseers. In the colonial and neocolonial alchemy, gold changes into scrap metal and food into poison.« Vehicle tracks scar the beautiful salt flats of “Salar de Uyuni”.
