A landscape of La Guajira can be added to other peoples of Colombia and the world: long lines of people waiting to fill out a container, tank cars pursued by the mob, animal-drawn vehicles and small vehicles adapted tanks, and parents family on whose shoulders are holding a balance of the ends hang two buckets full of the vital element.
