This is Santa Cruz de la Sierra, Bolivia

Happy New Year! Hey guys my name is Kricket. BoliviaBella.com has been online for 7 years now, and to kick off the New Year I will be starting a new Bolivia for Kids blog. I will be blogging every Wednesday and Friday. I’m planning a bunch of fun games for you guys such as guessing games, contests and other fun ways to learn about Bolivia online. Together we’ll be finding out about Bolivian history, music, food, people, culture, and many more things. You can write your own comments and suggestions to let me know what you’d like to see me blog about. I invite you to join me every Wednesday and Friday at Bolivia for Kids on BoliviaBella.com. Don't forget to follow me on Twitter and follow me on Pinterest too!

How do I list your website as a source
by: Sam Antha

I have to do a bibliography and I don't know how to cite a website and I used yours for almost the whole report.

What schools are like in Bolivia
by: Kricket

@Anonymous: You commented asking what Bolivian schools are like. Here are my answers. Keep in mind some of these come from personal experience.

Do you have to know Spanish?
In public schools yes but in some private schools they do have courses in English.

Do you get recess?
Yes.

What kind of sports do you play?
Our main sport is soccer, but at some schools you can also play basketball, volleyball, tennis, swimming, and others. What you can't find at most schools in Bolivia is baseball or softball.

Do they serve good food in the lunchroom?
Personally the schools I have gone to end before lunch so I haven't had a lunchroom. In Bolivia, school is only 5-6 hours a day. Some kids study in the morning and then they go home and other kids study at the same school during the afternoon. It's like two shifts.

Is there a lot of bullying?
Like in any other school there might be bullies.

Is it easy to make friends?
Depends. Not all kids are the same you know.

Is it true that you have to wear uniforms?
I'm afraid so in both public schools and private schools but there are some foreign schools where you don't need a uniform.

Did they give you a lot of homework?
Personally in my schools yes.

If you want to know more about Bolivian schools visit our section on education in Bolivia. We also have a special page for those who might be attending school in Bolivia as foreign exchange students.

Easy Bolivian food for kids to make
by: Pavel

I have to make some Bolivian food but it has to be something that's easy for kids to cook because I have to show the recipe that I used and I have to make it myself and then I have to take it to school so my teacher can eat it. She said the kids don't get to try any of it but I have to take it anyway so that they can see what it looks like so what's your favorite food and can you send me a recipe of it? And also it can't be anything with nuts ok thanks.
