« Bolivian leader is back! | Main | How to get a visa in Bolivia »

March 09, 2005



I randomly stumbled upon your website while doing a google search on poetry by Giaconda Belli... weird because I was in Bolivia for a month this past June. I'm a grad student at a university in Washington DC with a concentration on Human Rights in Latin America and thought finding your website was quite a coincidence. I'd be interested in hearing about your time in Bolivia and the work you are doing there. December's eleccions will be something interesting to witness! Good luck... Alex

Hi, I am from la paz living in London and like a lot your blog, I agree that Bolivia "is not just about exploitation and injustice. It would become very depressing if it was". Many people in europe don't know about Bolivia. The poorest people defeated Bechtel in the streets without weapons, and now they are defeating the oil companies with their votes. I feel proud to be human been, not everything is lost (when you live in europe seems like that) that Tacher won and only indivualism and charity is here to stay. Bolivia had demostrated that colectivism and justice is the way forward.

Your blog remains as interesting as ever - keep it up. Was in Ascuncion earlier in the year and going back in early September this year.

Noted a number of social and economic issues in Paraguay that reflect what I know of Bolivia.

Best Wishes
