i spotted this working family while on a 7 hour hike in samaipata. it was supposed to be 5 hours, but we got lost a couple of times. it's always strange when you see people who come from, and have, a completely different lifestyle to your own. growing up in a rich, western country i couldn't imagine living and working in such simple conditions like this. yet it's not unusal to discover that those who do are often a lot more content than those of us who have 'more'. i guess it's all about what you grow up with - and a change from that inevitably seems alien and often less satisfying. like when crocodile dundee went to new york. ahem. either that or these guys just think they don't need anything else to be happy... clearly they haven't experienced the joy of a playstation 3.
