I have been wanting to tell people about this experience for ten years. Ten years ago this January, in 1989, while hiking high on the Altiplano in Bolivia, I witnessed a dazzling display of bright, laser-like lights shooting up at the sky behind a bluff nearly two miles away. I was with a group of indigenous Quechua-speaking farmers. When I asked them what it was they smiled but refused to tell me anything. After insisting that they should tell me what I was seeing, they explained it came from "up there" - pointing up at the night sky. "Military?", I asked, knowing that the US were present in Bolivia. The Bolivians shook their heads and just pointed to the sky again. I nervously followed them back to our sleeping quarters a half-hour hike down the bluff we were standing on, in the pitch dark of night. The name of the bluff is Misquipampa, outside of Cochabamba, Bolivia.
