"I was told prior to going that..." Bolivia Warnings Or Dangers Tip by HighAdventur

Bolivia Warnings and Dangers: 48 reviews and 27 photos

<font color=green face=times New roman size=+1>I was told prior to going that Bolivia is a dirty country (at least in the cities). The three cities I encountered confirmed this. It reminds me of the American commercial from the 70's or so of the Indian crying because of the roadside litter. Do you remember that commercial? In my last city which is a border town with Peru, I walked through a littered city until I got to the border crossing. Upon crossing back into Peru, suddenly the streets were significantly cleaner.

It seems that Bolivians in the cities I've been to think nothing of throwing their trash wherever they are at the moment. The single word that best describes my feeling about this is 'sad'. It's so sad that a country so beautiful elsewhere would be so filthy in the cities.</font>
