Bolivia Rising Blog

Bolivia Rising – the most recent post is “Wonders of the Cocoa Leaf”, which gives a detailed review of the article that was printed elsewhere and then links to it for you to get more information.

Blog author does much of the sorting out the ‘wheat from the chaff’ by reviewing the massive amount of info on the Web and selecting material of substance and value for you to read. Good for those who have broad intellectual interests and like to be informed. Great links section (Spanish & English) as well as links to online news sources in Bolivia.

Missionary Man – Dan Moriarty’s Weblog from Bolivia – informative posts from a U.S. citizen who now lives in Cochabamba with his family and works with the Maryknoll Missionaries.

Dan has a MA in International Peace Studies from the Unviersity of Notre Dame (2001) and posts have a Catholic-based religious/political slant. His care and concern for the people of Bolivia and their country is clear – read the blog to learn more.

Open Veins – LOVE this blog about “Life, Politics & Friendships in Bolivia” by a guy from London – Nick Buxton – who spent four years in Bolivia “fighting for social and environmental justice”. He’s not alone. Now lives in the U.S. with his wife and child. Best of luck to the family. Check out the blog for ‘oldies but goodies’ posts.

Bolivia Web Blog – “News and Comments about Bolivia Web”. This blog is just that – nicely organized into categories to select from such as sports, provinces, telecommunications, music, maps, etc. Another good place to shop for select news on Bolivia that has been pre-posting reviewed by an actual human, not the Google bot.

And honorable mention goes to… The Democracy Center’s Blog From Bolivia that began reporting in 2004 and closed it’s online doors in September, 2010.

The blog roll of past articles contains a wealth of information on Bolivia and many aspects of its recent history, covered in depth by skilled, knowledgeable reporters. The blog owner and his wife spent a year as a volunteer in an orphanage (1991-1992), then returned to Bolivia in 1998 to live in Cochabamba.

Note: If you are interested in political events in Bolivia, definitely scan its archives.
