While Trump Strengthens Borders, Bolivian & Peruvian Locals Defy Them

While President Trump strengthens borders and the U.K. shuffles around with Brexit, the world seems to be becoming more isolated, but not all countries share the same closed-border values.

A new brotherhood has emerged between two towns, as local indigenous resident on both sides of Lake Titicaca — which occupies a part of both Peru and Bolivia — sign an agreement to cooperate both politically and culturally.
