Driving in Bolivia

So I could vent some more about some things here, but I’ll just say something short about the driving.   People here really drive like maniacs (and that’s not me being judgmental of the culture, I promise, they will admit it themselves.).   Instead of yielding at an intersection to other cars or pedestrians, cars just lay on the horn as if to say “I have no intention of stopping so get out of my way.”  You might be saying to yourself, this sounds like a dangerous system and you would be right.  There is no pedestrian right of way and as we experienced this morning when two cars come to an intersection and both honk they just drive right into each other!   Needless to say we are being very careful and getting out of the way when we hear honks.
