It is the moon and not a photoshop. Take a look at this recent snapshot by the AP of the moon from Brazil.

Sometimes feel strange on why some countries build their capital at very high altitude as like La Paz which is the highest capital on earth wy not Cochabamba or Santa Cruz which are at much lower heights.

great photos btw , if I have money i wanna visit LaPaz, Cochabamba, SantaCruz, Lake Titicaca, Potosi, Mt Illampu, Sucre, Salar de Uyuni , and the tropical part of Bolivia

when you are at sea level in some tropical countries it could be soooo hot and wet for europeans (that change a ibt since new technologies), and spaniards like to build big cities in altitude for the simple reason that the hignlands were temperate climate, as europe. so sucre and potosi were the 2 more importants bolivian cities, but bolivia wasnt a real unified colony, they were part of de la plata viceroyalty or peruvian viceroyalty, so bolivia hasnt a clear capital city from the begining, they just had sucre as capital but in many times the goverment moves from city to city. then la paz won a civil war against south and then la paz was capital city with sucre. but still sucre is capital with la paz.

When entering the Andes Mountains to Bolivia is divided into two, forming a high plateau and this plateau is where the lakes, lagoons, salt lakes and deserts.

Pd. excuse my English
