El Alto, Bolivia

A wedding takes place inside the 'Rei Del Amour', a 'Cholet-style' building. These buildings represent the new Indian architecture. The majority were built by the architect of Aymara Indian heritage, Freddy Mamani. ''The aim of this architecture is to show the world that our culture is alive and well, to showcase our success'', he explains. ''Before the arrival of Morales, we were humiliated and discriminated against, we were afraid to show our true selves. Today, we're no longer afraid.''
