Bolivia Again

Sorry for no original posts, folks, but I've been busing through Central America for the past three days, chasing women in the lovely and lively San Salvador and creeping around corners in the decrepit and depressing Managua (a truly vile city). I'm in Quepos, Costa Rica, right now, and I plan on spending a few days swinging in a hammock and drinking several beers--nothing else!--so you'll have to wait for any more stories.

But if you feel like learning a bit more about the situation in Bolivia, check out this Times profile of Ronald Larsen, an American who owns vast tracks of lands in that country. He's beloved by the Santa Cruz Province seccessionist movement, and he's even got an American-educated son who is a former Mr. Bolivia beauty pagent queen king (I shit you not).
