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.
