Día del Peatón

Día del Peatón in Cochabamba is the annual Sunday (yesterday) when all driving is prohibited in preference to pedestrian traffic. A travesty of rights and active discrimination against the motorist the day may be, but the town sure is quiet! Our busy street of Simon Lopez, which is normally filled with honking cars and screeching brakes, was filled with cyclists and walkers.
