There were two reasons I wanted to visit El Alto, at one time a slum on the margins of Bolivia’s capital La Paz and now the country’s second largest city. One: It’s the highest major metropolis in the world; and two: it’s the largest indigenous city in the Americas.

Six snaps from a small rally in front of Slovenia’s national parliament building today to bring attention to the dangerous levels of heavy metal poisoning in the country’s cities and towns.
