X-mas in the Puna (Argentinian Altiplano)

X-mas on the Puna (argentinian altiplano) … every single encounter in the Puna calls respect towards each single human being. “Don” Moises who will celebrate 99 years next year is living alone on the shore of the Pastos Grandes salt lake. He is blind and lives with his dog. “Don” Navidad (his parents called him Navidad because he was born on the 24/12), recently retired from mining industry is also living alone in a remote place (4400mts elevation). His cat follows him everywhere. Away from the main bustle of the cities preparing the “noche buena” (X-mas party), these brave & lonely fellows will wait for another morning … the Puna crystallizes time and is a sepulture of memory.
