Bolivia has a rich indigenous history. Not only was Bolivia part of the Inca Empire, but there was civilization in Bolivia
long before the Inca conquest. The pride in this history is reflected in the flying of the Inca flag (below) throughout
Bolivia.

and updated by

The ruins below are Aymara ruins.
