People are friendly and open, hospitable and welcoming for the most part, but form opinions early on and often cling to stereotypes. Your knowledge of the culture, customs and etiquette of Bolivia will cause them to concentrate less on teaching you Bolivian customs and more on wanting to know about your culture and customs. A lack of knowledge on Bolivian culture will put the focus back on you.
