The Chaco War

Chaco WarYesterday we went to an exhibition in Cochabamba about the Chaco war. This war lasted from 1932-1935 and was the largest and bloodiest war of the twentieth century in South America.


Last Friday night we went to a tango night at the mARTadero. The mARTadero is an old slaughterhouse (matadero) which is no longer used as such but is used now for all kinds of ART forms. Regularly there are music performances, lectures, workshops on photography and web design, theater, etc.

Talent Night

Tonight we went to a  ‘talent night’ in our church (Palabra de Fe). This was the second time such a night was organized. The first one we have not seen, so we were very curious what would be done.

Ebooks in South America

My wife and I are staying in Bolivia for a year, in the city of Cochabamba. In order not to have to drag along suitcases full of books we both have an ereader. But for the rest the theme of ‘ebooks’ is something that isn’t alive here in Bolivia. On the Mobileread forum I have seen someone from Bolivia and a couple of people from Argentina but that’s it about. But last Saturday I was surprised to read an article about ebooks in one of the local newspapers.

Three months in South America

We have been three month in South America. We have had quite some experiences and done many things. So much that I didn’t have enough time to write the travel report. While writing this I realise that one quarter of our time here has already elapsed. Today I have started writing again and the result will be published soon here. For now I have put a list here of the tweets that I sent during these three month that are related to our stay in South America. Because most of them are in Dutch you have to read them in the Dutch version of this post. All times are local time.
