Winter arrives in Bolivia

Winter here means cold winds from the south and temperatures in the 50s, occasionally dipping into the 40s. Few homes and commercial buildings have central heating, so temperatures in the 50s mean people feel the cold. Notice that the guest speaker in my ethics class, Hernan Cabrera of the journalists' federation, keeps his jacket and sweater on. Below, Abraham Carrillo, a reporter for Santa Cruz Economico, wears his hat and scarf as he works in the newsroom. At bottom is a photo from El Nuevo Dia of a school that has no windows. The kids are bundled up.
