Grafitti thoughts

By Published On: August 19, 2005Categories: Culture1 Comment on Grafitti thoughts

Grafitti here tends to be a bit more thoughtful than the usual giant willies you get painted on most walls in British towns. Here are three of my recent favourites:

The crisis isn’t economic, it’s personal
La crisis no es economica, es personal

Never forget your fragility
Nunca olvides tu fragilidad

Take care with building the present; it needs to look like the future that you dream of
Ten cuidado con el presente que construyes debe parecerse al futuro que sueñas

The last two were done by a group of women called "Mujeres Creando" (I hope to do an interview with them soon). On another note, I finally ($450 dollars, a urine test, a forest-full of photocopying and three months later) got my identity card yesterday which gives me the right to stay here until July next year when I have to start the whole process again.

The shortcut is apparently to find a Bolivian wife. Maybe I will put an ad in the paper. I have only got a year to go….

    Bolivia: Grafitti thoughts

    Nick Buxton compares grafitti in Bolivia and Britain and finds the former tends to be more thoughtful.
