Question - cambas
Hi - Great site, I'm actually using it for a grad school paper on Bolivia. Part of the paper focuses on the differences between collas and cambas, the Andean Bolivians and the crucenos. I thought I'd throw you some questions:
-Is colla a derogatory term or just descriptive?
-Do you have an image (a photo or photos) that could be used in a slide show to represent "cambas"? Meaning, on one hand the image of indigenous Bolivians represents collas, do you have anything I could put on a slide that would be a "camba"? or if not, what would it look like?
-Do you know what major industries are in Santa Cruz besides natural gas, oil, and soybeans/sugarcane?
-Any other immigrant groups besides Brazilians, Paraguayans? A friend said he knew a Croatian who moved down there, any other places?
Thanks I appreciate any feedback. Great site, very inviting. I lived in Costa Rica one year, seems like moving to Santa Cruz is somewhat similar although people seem to go to SC more to work and farm whereas they go to CR to hang out and retire/gamble/evade taxes : )/etc.
