Bolivia - Culture
By Ekaterina Zhdanova-Redman
  

1     Bolivian culture is full of color. Its mixed population brings together a diverse collection of lifestyles. The original inhabitants of the area, the native Incans and the Tiahuanacan have many traditions. The Spanish who arrived in the 16th century brought a great amount of Spanish and European culture with them. And the mixed population of the Spanish and natives developed their own culture.
 
2     There are many parts to Bolivian culture. Dance, music and even parties in Bolivia have a flavor you won't find anywhere else. Bolivian writers have created wonderful books and poems. Among these writers is a woman who turned personal tragedy into powerful writing.
 
3     Imagine you are blind. How would this change your life? Are there things you could no longer do? Are there things you could do, or do better, without your eyesight? How would you feel about losing your sight? Would you be angry? Scared? Maria Josefa Mujia of Bolivia turned her blindness into a passion for writing.
