Well below the mountain range of Carabaya, nearby Tantamaco town, next a deep valley, people of small farm flourishes. Most of them only grow goats, sheeps and alpacas. Dogs take care of the cattle and a child should be looking at them. Farms are expecting the rainy season to sow potatoes, although the frosts suddenly destroy the sowings. Behind it is seen the highway to Brasil just at the edge of deep precipices. The school, with ground yard, attends students that arrives from more than 10 kilometers around.

Location: Tantamaco, Carabaya, Puno, Peru, South America
