Photographer's Note

This cute little dog was the guardian of the cosmic rays laboratory in Chacaltaya, Bolivia, a laboratory at 5300 meters above sea level to study particles coming from the space.
His name was "Canito". As I was "a new face" in his place, the technicians of the La Paz university kept him in his doghouse when I arrived, as he was very annoying with his bark. After a while he realized that I was not a dangerous person, and he calmed down.
He used to run towards the jeeps in the morning, when he saw them approaching in the distance, descending several hundred meters downhill, and the follow back the cars uphill to 5300 meters, always running and barking.
A "mission impossible" for a human being at that altitude !
