Food prices have trebled or doubled; restaurants are not teeming with hungry customers; salaries have not increased; people are tightening their belts. Its a grim situation made worse by increasing and never ending tensions between the Bolivian government and provinces.

The government has decreed a temporary halt to the export of manufactured oil. Business interests cry foul! People are worn out from being hurtled from one crisis to another.

This is a dizzying experience. I am personally cutting down on my expenses. Its kinda difficult but inevitable.
