Getting My First Digits in Bolivia

While I certainly have not have been to many cities in Bolivia, I can confidently say that Bolivian women are really lacking in the looks department. It’s not the nicest thing to say something like that but the truth is that I saw less than 5 cute girls during my month traveling in Bolivia. Even the hired dancers in upscale clubs were ugly.

One exception was in the airport in El Alto on my way to the jungle. I saw an attractive girl around my age! She was well dressed with feminine, distinct Latin features  .  I could not help but stare at her thinking she must not be from Bolivia. Well, as I sat waiting miserably for my delayed flight to the jungle she took a seat right next to me.

“Do you know what time it is”, she asked.

And like that we talked and flirted for a few minutes until she had to board her flight back to her hometown in Tarija, Bolivia’s wine producing area. We kissed each other on the cheek as is typical for saying goodbye/hello to friends in Latin America, and exchanged numbers.

Our brief encounter made me remember how much I enjoy meeting cute, foreign women.  The entire process, whether in Colombia, Brazil, or any country is exciting as I struggle to communicate with a girl. But that’s a fun obstacle that changes the dynamics and forces both of us to rely less on language and more on the feelings we get from nonverbal cues.  And for this reason I seem to be more aggressive in meeting foreign women because the reward is greater

, and even greater
