CUTE LITTLE ORURO

(Version française plus bas)

Oruro, a small miners’ town. Pretty stained glass windows in a not so pretty cathedral. A Jesus Christ on a silver- or tin?- cross, evidence of the mining tradition of the town. A street inhabited by lawyers and solicitors. School girls listening to reggaeton on their phone after school. Soft sunlight bathing the hills of Oruro.

ORURO LA MIGNONE

Oruro, une petite ville de mineurs. De jolis vitraux dans une cathédrale sans charme. Une Christ sur une croix d’argent, ou d’étain (?), preuve de la tradition minière de la ville. Une rue peuplée d’avocats et de notaires. Des élèves écoutant du reggeaton sur leur téléphone après les cours. La lumière douce du soleil baignant les collines d’Oruro.
