In South America dogs live nearly everywhere and are mostly on their own. Well, this sounds a bit dangerous, yet the dogs I have seen in South America were all very well behaved, mostly clean and really friendly. I can’t even remember one uncomfortable situation with a dog in 6 months! (Whereas in Europe, I had quite a few uncomfortable situations from dogs barking at me like crazy to other annoying things, even (or especially?) when they were with their owners.)
As you can see in the video below, I took some pictures of them and mostly from close range (I only have 4x zoom). Nevertheless, be careful, but most dogs will just ignore you or will be really cute to get some food.
I was really amazed to discover such a wide range of different dog breeds in South America, especially the number of Huskies and German Shepards.
This video features various photos I took in Trujillo, Perú. These pictures range from touristic locations – like plaza de armas – to more uncommon and sometimes dangerous places, e.g., where I took private dancing lessons.
For further information about Trujillo and Peru, I can highly recommend the following the the Lonely Planet – Peru.
Video: Trujillo, Nasca Lines, Ica, Rio Cuarto, Cordoba, Sucre, Arequipa, etc. Some of the most interesting vehicles I have seen in South America from taxis to trucks, from bikes to horse cars. Bookmark It Hide Sites
When I was staying in Sucre (Bolivia) in 2007, there were quite some unrest.
I took this video at the main place of Sucre, shortly afterwards a firecracker landed next to us. My ear went *beeeeep* immediately and hearing was hindered for a few days. We were quite lucky though, since the use of firecrackers and other stuff was quite common. Also the people are wearing masks in case the police uses tear gas.
Bolivian Police Sucre 2007
28th August 2007, Sucre (Bolivia).
The aim of this demonstration is to move the capital of Bolivia from La Paz to Sucre. Right now, Sucre is “just” is the constitutional capital of Bolivia, whereas La Paz is the administrative capital.
Here are some of the best shots I took of the demonstrations (“marchas”).
These are some places of Cordoba (Argentina) you probably won’t see during a tourist tour. These places include an abandoned train station and various old buildings located in different parts of the city. You can find some stories about these places in the adventures section.
