Apparently Bolivians don’t read.
Not in the habit.
So I’m told by my Bolivian civil servant friend who tested this theory by attending a pro-government rally wearing a T-shirt declaring his support for TIPNIS, to wit, the main debate which threatens the very legitimacy of the government right now.
However, no-one noticed.
Not even his boss.
Well, I just saw someone with some sort of message emblazoned on his T-shirt and remembering this salutary lesson I paused to take it in.
And it went thus: I´d sooner be a well-known drunk than an anonymous alcoholic.
BIG UP LITERACY!
