Fiestas of the Andes. “Eat the soup”, Karla said to me in English.

Fiestas of the Andes

“But…”, I started. “Eat it.” Two bowls of Fanesca, a traditional Ecuadorian dish, had been neatly placed on stools in the middle of the dirt floor. We were in the heart of indigenous territory. Nestled in the peaks of the Ecuadorian Andes and miles from flushing toilets and running water, the frigid morning air bit my nose and turned my breath into smoke. I first found out about Zumbahau while researching for my thesis in the Silicon Valley. Well, I was there to find out. As we explored the fiestas of the Andes over the years, the history of South America developed in our minds and in our images. It is impressive that in spite of the efforts of the Catholic Church to completely destroy the indigenous culture, so much has survived.

This investigation has been an ongoing journey into the depths of South America’s culture. Karla Gachet - historias. CAO Wawachaña, partos en el techo del mundo (44586) Olmo Calvo / Sub.Coop/ Picturetank CAO0536777.

'Bolivia's Cerro Rico mines killed my husband. Now they want my son'

The Cerro Rico, or Rich Hill, produced an estimated 2bn ounces of silver, making Potosí, the Bolivian city beneath it, the world's largest industrial complex in the 16th century, according to the UN's cultural body, which named it a world heritage site in 1987. But last week, Unesco added Cerro Rico and Potosí to its list of endangered sites, owing to "uncontrolled mining operations" that risk "degrading the site". In 2011, after nearly 500 years of constant extraction, the mountain's iconic summit was at risk of collapse.

Engineers from the state mining company, Comibol, raced to save the 4,824-metre peak, filling a 50-metre-wide crater with ultra-light cement. Bolivia's Cerro Rico, the 'mountain that eats men', could sink whole city. At 6am, a weak and silvery light illuminates the narrow streets of the Calvario neighbourhood, as thousands of men and teenage boys make their way towards the cone-shaped peak that looms over the Bolivian city of Potosí.

Bolivia's Cerro Rico, the 'mountain that eats men', could sink whole city

El Cerro Rico – the rich hill – stands above what was once the largest silver deposit in the world: veins of precious metals so bountiful they bankrolled the Spanish empire and changed the course of history. Even today, a booming commodities market means the mountain continues to drive the local economy: about 15% of Potosí's male population still work in mining; thousands more are involved in transporting, smelting, sorting and trading minerals. But 470 years of digging have left the mountain so riddled with tunnels and sinkholes that geologists say parts of the peak risk collapse.
