Peru: One Year after the Earthquake

One year after the earthquake that killed more than 500 people and devastated the town of Pisco, the people affected claim that not enough has been done to reconstruct their shattered homes and lives.

At the end of 2005, I took this picture in the main square of Pisco. You can see the same point from the same perspective at 1.22 in the photo slideshow here: Kleph. Apparently the hotel I stayed at was spared from damage and became a base for rescue workers and NGO officials.
