Innocents Abroad

Bolivia's December elections have been postponed or cancelled. I wonder what kind of mood this will put people into. One of the indigenous candidates for President is blaming the US Embassy. Police used tear gas to suppress an anti-US protest near the embassy yesterday, but that one was focused on our harboring of a former president Bolivia's Human Rights Assembly accuses of genocide. Keep an eye on Blog From Bolivia for updates. I'm leaving for Cochabamba in a few hours.

(I'm really not worried. We're going to be with nice people doing good work, in a peaceful part of the country far from where all this is playing out. I'll post more in a couple weeks.)
