They speak Spanish in Bolivia, right?

Two posts in one day, you lucky lucky people. And it includes a piccie too (though not a proper travelling pic, just a screenshot).

Just to give you an idea of some of the weirdness that affects internet cafes and general life here. Here´s a screen grab of the blogger comments screen that I got when trying to reply to a comment a few minutes ago.



Spanish is the official language of Bolivia but there´s several indigenous languages that are very common. You see them on shop signs etc, looking like Arabic of Hebrew. The guy using the computer before me must have preferred one of these languages and changed the setting. Of course, I´m not sure what to click to get it back to Spanish. Oh well.

That looks like Korean to me. I have a feeling that the guy on the computer before you was a tourist, not an indigenous Bolivian. Same could be true with the signs - big tourist towns like Cuzco, Kathmandu, and Bangkok often advertise directly to Israelis in Hebrew.
