Peru and Bolivia - Ryan Kost

Quico Chico Home

Home in Quico Chico in Nacion Q''eros Peru. This is where we stay with the entire family who sleeps on the bed seen here. 4 people cram into the small bed in the freezing cold every night. Additionally they cook potatoes from the small kitchen and have no venting , so the charred and black smoke infiltrates your lungs. The stone walls have no mortar and the frigid winds easily fills the small room. The door is maybe 3 feet, and you have to be careful to not bump your head everytime you step out. No running water. No electricity. This is life. This is perspective.
