In this July 22, 2013, Aymara Indian women walk barefoot on potatoes to remove frozen dew and the peels as they work in extreme cold temperatures on La Cumbre mountain to prepare a local staple called “chuno” on the outskirts of La Paz, Bolivia. At the end of the harvest, farmers carry huge sacks of potatoes up the snow-capped Andes and spread the spuds out on the ground for three days until they are frozen solid. Then they stomp the frozen potatoes with their bare feet and let the resulting mash dry in the sun until it is a dark color. (AP Photo/Juan Karita) less
