Just like the large variety of potatoes located in Bolivia there is a rivaling amount of peppers as well. Bright in colors, these peppers range from sweet to intensely hot and often by first glance, are indistinguishable.
Local vendors sold homemade food during the conference. The food ranged from traditional meals to this Bolivian variation on a cupcake.
With over 36 recognized Indigenous communities in Bolivia, the conference included a eclectic mix of attendees dressed in all colors of traditional dress. Each of the indigenous communities in Bolivia has their own culture, traditions and language.

Bolivian President Evo Morales held a press conference in the middle of the 4 day WPCCC conference to address any concerns or questions. The press conference was the first event of the press day to the village of Colomi.
Many press were present all through out the conference in an attempt to document the history of the WPCCC as it was happening. This documentation also allowed the rest of the world not present at the conference to connect with the vital information that was coming out of these 4 days.
