a glimpse

 

glimpse: NOT LOST | We thought we were absurdly lost that day. And on paper we were. But we were paperless, left to our own devices. No map, no guidebook, no being lost so long as you keep walking. Reaching for the blue heart of Lake Titicaca, the right ridge towards the north of Isla del Sol was far from us. But we were far from lost and we had the vista to back it up.

 

glimpse: YOUR IMAGINATION | What do you see when you don’t know what you see, when you see whatever you want to see? Something small could be something big, something far could be something near, something could be something else. Your imagination, your call.

 

Altiplano, Uyuni / Bolivia · 2014   It's barren up there at 4.000m, surreal and beautiful.

La Paz was love on second sight, maybe on third. I fell for its quirky ways once we got the apartment.
