Your website saved my marriage!
Dear Bella, your website saved my marriage. Thirteen years ago I married a wonderful Bolivian man. We've only traveled to Bolivia twice in the time we've been married, and both times were short trips, not enough to really get to know much about the country. I never really realized how much our cultural differences affected our ability to communicate with each other or how important it was to him that I take an interest in his background until about a year ago when I stumbled upon your site. I was so intrigued by it, and the information you share in such a personal manner really caught my attention. I've spent countless hours on your site and I've probably devoured every page by now. We were close to divorce but when I began to understand more about Bolivia, and the mentality and where my husband comes from I began to see things differently and looked for ways to improve the way we communicate. He noticed I was making an effort and began to make an effort too, we became more tolerant and understanding of each other. We've even taken to cooking together - we visit your recipes page a lot! We decided to give our marriage another try and actually found a bicultural marriage counselor. Today we're so much happier and we recently renewed our vows. Thank you so much! Keep up the life-changing good work. I'm sure there must be a lot of other people who visit your site who've been moved by it as much as we have.
Greetings from K and O in Richmond, VA.
