Two elderly women walk in the port in the locality of Tiquina, 117 km from La Paz in the Bolivian Altiplano on November 16, 2009. A hundred passengers are stranded due to a block by people from this locality against the building of a bridge which, according to them, will reduce their earnings —mainly based on the rent of their boats for passengers and vehicles. After a week-long roadblock, goods and gasoline is becoming scarce in the Bolivian locality of Copacabana, on the shore of the Titicaca Lake in the border with Peru.
