Join the Anglo-Bolivian Society for a presentation by former British diplomat Alan Shave on the British in Bolivia.
Living in La Paz since his retirement in 1996, Alan was challenged, over a glass of cognac, to write a history of the British in Bolivia. His investigations have now produced some 40 chapters in draft – and he’s still researching everything British in his adoptive country from bilateral relations to spies, mining and railway development, alleged British ‘interests’ in the Pacific and Chaco Wars, and even the story of ‘Big Ben’, the wandering clock tower of La Paz, and the city’s ‘British’ Cemetery. ‘Bits and pieces’, he says, which may someday become a readable history of the British in Bolivia.
Bolivia's cultural heritage includes unique dances and music. Enjoy presentations by Bolivian dancers and music artists based in the UK.
Bolivia's gastronomy is best known for its unique street food. In this video, Bolivian Chef Belen Borda, executive chef of Belen Restaurante, gives a short introduction to some of the most popular street food options you should try when visiting Bolivia.
