Photo Project ’52 Bolivian Sundays’ [week 35, ‘Sea’]. Okay, no sea in Bolivia, but…

I totally understand the words ‘sea’ and ‘Bolivia’ do not got together in the same sentence!

Sorry for that… ♥

For the ones who have forgotten a bit of their geography:

Unfortunately, the country of Bolivia do not have access to the ocean, it does not have a ‘sea view’ of it’s own…

Not going into political details…

Some neighboring countries may have some justification to that… 😮 but for now, leaving politics completely out of any of my blogposts!

For this week photo series, I’m bringing in two possible options for the ‘Challenge Sea‘.

The first one: Bolivia does have the largest fresh water lake in South America [woot,woot!]

Lake Titicaca

The second option: the easiest way to get a unique ‘sea view’, on any given ‘Bolivian Sunday’ is to visit the neighboring Chile…. like our family did, some time this year!

Maybe, I’m cheating…(?) but I can’t go against geography, right? If there’s no sea, there’s no sea… ♥ Enjoy as you please, and thanks for stopping by! ♥

    Oh yes, I have been across Lake Titicaca. It’s so beautiful there. We visited both Sun and Moon Islands. What a great trip it was. 🙂

    Living in Switzerland I know how you feel, completely landlocked with no sea for hundreds of miles! You have an incredibly beautiful country, the lake looks lovely. Thanks for the pingback, much appreciated 🙂

      My pleasure to share the beauties from Bolivia! Also, you’re welcome – glad to add more posts to the bunch! 😮

    Great point! 😉 and stunning pictures anyway!
    thanks also for the pingback
    it’s always lovely to discover everyone’s take on the subject and I truly enjoyed yours.

      So glad you enjoyed the pics over here! I tried my best to offer a ‘close approach’ to the challenge – without a sea, how could one respond to a ‘sea-inspired challenge’, correct? 😮

    No need to worry about “cheating” here 🙂 A large body of water is a “sea”, whether or not it’s an ocean – at least in my humble opinion. 🙂 Thanks for the pingback.

      Oh, nice comment… and thanks for believing in the ‘non-cheating’ approach… definitely, not going for that… but had to use the largest fresh water lake in S.A. in place of this week’s ‘sea inspiration’, in order to continue with the weekly photo project… 52 planned weeks for this 2013, and we’re cruising thru week 35 – hard to believe! It’s become more difficult than I first imagined… but I’ll not quit… every week is a challenge, literally speaking… and every week I come trying to share/display something unique from Bolivia, inspired by the weekly photo challenge – so far, it’s worked… let’s see what’s in store for the upcoming 17 weeks! Thank you very much for stopping by, and as i always state over here, it’s my pleasure to share your posts! 😮

        Yes, weekly posts can become a challenge. I realized today that I didn’t do a single post in August. Partial excuse – being away on vacation and busy harvesting. So, hats off to your 52-post endeavor!

          Still trying… still trying… not complete yet, so… 😮
          But, thanks for the words of support!
