I visited Santa Cruz for the first time when I was about 9 or 10 years old. At the time, what is now Bolivia's most populous city was a small town with most of its homes still concentrated within the first ring (the downtown area known as the Casco Viejo, or historic center of the city). The largest market area was 7 Calles and a lazy Sunday walk from there to the Parque Arenal, the city's first park, took 15 minutes including a stop at a corner near the central plaza to buy freshly squeezed juice from a lady who could strip the peel off an orange all in one piece. The second ring was just a red dirt road.

Hola BB....thanks for the post. Probably all correct in my opinion. Maybe true of all large cities with recent and rapid growth.

Tens of thousands of poor camposinos have flooding this "economic engine" and with little social safety net, the results are what you are seeing.

I am often amazed that thousands of out of work people, with nothing much to do, cannot pick up ANY trash. Oh well, Santa Cruz is still my favorite city..........with regards..........Willie

haha, poor kid, he needs to live more.

Try to go Russia and prove you're a greatest human
the best of the best and probably, you never come back alive.

Silly racists. You think you're better
and in another country you're the worst in the mind
of your racist counterpart.

I always wondered why paceños call cruceño racists. As you've clearly demonstrated, paceños are no less racist.

What a moron you are; you and all your childish aliases. You're so ignorant about Bolivia that you don't know how to spell collas - your descent into racial stereotypes notwithstanding. Do everyone a favor and stay in northern Virgina.

Strange answer from some one who probably represents the people that in almost 200 years turned a land with the richest city in the world in to the poorest country of the continent. A country which for maybe 97% of the time passed since its foundation, has had one of his one on the throne. Not a very good record to presume that his people can make any place better.
