Bolivia: Visas in Hindsight

El Alto blogger Mario Ronald Duran Chuquimia laments the need of Bolivians to migrate to Spain [ES].

He writes, tongue-in-cheek, that it was Bolivia's mistake not to require visas from the Spanish during the time of the conquest. Now, Bolivians, who out of necessity, are not allowed into Spain even though the workers are considered to be hard-working and efficient.
