From the air, the Democratic and Cultural Revolution Museum stands like a concrete fortress amid the humble adobe and brick homes in the remote town of Orinoca high up in the desert of the Bolivian altiplano.
It's one of the biggest museums in this Andean country and it was built by President Evo Morales in his birthplace to honour the country's indigenous peoples. But the $7 million museum has stirred controversy because it is dedicated to Morales, the country's first indigenous president, and it has a whole floor that pays homage to him and his gifts from international soccer players and dignitaries.
