Street Wires Of La Paz   3 comments

BoliviaLa Paz Street Corner — Image by kenne

Having once worked for the telephone company in the 1960s, poles and wires tend to stand out in my line of vision in this city of many colors and contradictions. Streets lined with wires streaming from nests atop poles are not uncommon in old South American cities, a reflection of the congested streets of people and vehicles.

I learned that most of these wires no longer are being used. It seems that when replacing a line, it’s not taken down — to much trouble.

  1. Incredible to see all the wires above the streets. Apparently, the people don’t know anything different.

  2. I’ve seen pictures like this in India, where so many of our call centers are located. I noticed them right away.
