I met the Bolivian side of my family for the first time in my life when I went to visit La Paz in (2011). Our encounter was very unique. My Bolivian family members and I both spoke in Spanish, but with different accents (I speak with a Dominican accent). It was very funny.
Anyways, below are some pictures from that first trip about 8-9 years ago. If you like them, write a comment below. Also, follow me on social media @cocotucafe for more pictures of my travels to Bolivia and Latin America.
While I was walking in La Paz city center, this lady and her colorful uniform grabbed my attention. She was into something.
Many were in favor of Evo, but others clearly did not like him.
Beers, cervezas, chelas were mainly served in the big bottles instead of the regular 8oz we are used to in other countries. Huari is my favorite.
Abuela I never met. Rest in Peace.
Cool uncle Rolo hung out with me. We walked together everywhere.
These ladies are brave and hard workers. Don’t mess with Cholitas in Bolivia!
