A resident drives his motorcycle on a dirt path alongside the salt-crusted former shoreline of Lake Poopo, in Punaca, Bolivia, Sunday, May 23, 2021. For many generations, the homeland of the Uru wasn't land at all: It was the brackish waters of Lake Poopo. Now what was Bolivia's second-largest lake is gone. It dried up about five years ago, victim of shrinking glaciers, water diversions for farming and contamination. (AP Photo/Juan Karita)
