Samuel in the Clouds

Samuel in the clouds


Almost every single day, former ski lift operator Samuel walks up to the world’s highest ski resort located next to La Paz in Bolivia. Samuel is hoping for snow, but the glacier melted away. Scientists are measuring the changes in their laboratory on the same peak. While the clouds drift by, all seems lost.
