What will the new Year’s bring to Bolivia?

Apparently not much, and its hesitant to land in La Paz, Bolivia… suggests the El Diario cartoon that appeared January 1, 2012.

Given all the pending issues/problems like salary increases, fuel subsidies, smuggling, cocaine trafficking, illegal settlements, lack of public safety, marches, blockades, strikes in general and the TIPNIS; will all of them more likely converge into the sorry streets of La Paz. I used to live in that, not-so-long-ago nice city but now is just a headache and the tension among its neighbors and those of El Alto, is just too much to ask.
