What’s going on in Bolivia, besides the fact that it looks vaguely like the street view driver just stumbled upon a murder scene? I leave to you to decide exactly what’s going on here.

You’ll find both street view and photo spheres to inspire you in Bolivia. Your only requirement is to keep your story-essay-poem at 150 words or less.

Once your piece is polished, please share it with other Pegman contributors at the Linkup below. Reading and commenting on others’ stories is part of the fun.

This week Pegman takes us deep in the heart of Southern Africa, to Botswana. You’ll find both streetview and photospheres within its borders. Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to write a 150-word story, poem, essay, article, screenplay, song, or limerick. Bonus points if you can write a 150-word haiku.

Feel free to wander within the borders of Botswana and chose your own slice of inspiration. Or, you can use the photo provided with the prompt.

NOTE: In putting together this post, I wound up browsing the photospheres in the safari country in Northern Botswana. I saw amazing things I’ve never seen anywhere else. So what I’m trying to tell you is the intrepid searcher will be rewarded by poking around up here. It’s a treasure chest of inspiration.
