The streets are bare, since the government requires everyone to stay inside during the national census.

Everyone, including tourists, had to stay indoors for the 24 hours of 5 September 2001 for the census. We were counted and profiled just like the Bolivians.


 
 
PAIGE'S NOTES
 
5 September 2001 Bolivian government mandated everyone locals and tourists alike stay indoors today during the national census, which took place with workers going door to door and asking name, address and education data with answers then penciled onto SAT-like forms complete with fill-in-the-blank ovals. During breakfasts, Jim and I joined two young students administering the census to all hotel guests, no matter their nationality.
