In pictures: Leaving Bolivia
Lure of money

Jose Peņaloza Aguilar is a carpenter and beekeeper who lives in the remote village of Tablas Monte in central Bolivia.

Nearly a year ago, his wife Lourdes left him and their three sons to go and work in Spain.

She was lured by money - in Europe she can earn 12 times as much as she would here.

Lourdes is just one of many villagers who have made the trip, BBC News meets those left behind.
