    one of the parks

    There are many cute little parks everywhere. Also, there are many statues. They are of crosses, Jesus, dinosaurs, and other things. All the parks have their own uniqueness to them. You must check them out.

    The river

    entrance to river

    Unfortunately, I dont know the name or where it is, but there is a river in Santa Cruz. When you enter, on both sides there are huts where you can eat, dance, or drink a beer. You can also rent 4 wheelers (about 80 Bolivianos an hour) which comes to less than $10. You can also rent horses. These you can ride through the jungle on. It is a beautiful place. You must go on a day when you want to relax.

    PUBLIC SCHOOL LUIS ANTONIO ANEZC

    Some schools

    I thought the big huts that I saw they were abandoned , nothing more far than the reality.
    The public school Luis Antonio Anezc is one of the schools that the government has in the deprived neighbourhoods where the children study. How I missed my own desk from the school.

    The 9th Ring

    Monse��or Castellanos

    The oil peak started on 1940, made that Santa Cruz de la Sierra developed so quick and the city in less than 50 years past from 100.000 inhabitants to more than a million. This has caused a lot of immigrants live in conditions of extremely poverty, without water or light. The city grow fast than the authorities can plan. In the 9th ring there is the PLAN 3000 of New Men. I didn’t find the 9th ring in my map. We went to la “Choza” (hut), that it’s the hut of Monsignor Castellanos, Asturias prince award. I found a person full of vitality and happy with his work. He share the work like one more, in palace all are the same.
