If you ever go to Bolivia make sure to watch the Cholitas. The event is held in a small town outside of La Paz each sunday. Watching these women in their traditional skirts bashing each other heads while the whole room is cheering for them is an experience you won’t find anywhere. This form of professional wrestling - Lucha Libre - started out in Mexico and are now spread out in other different spanish-speaking countries. In Bolivia the Lucha Libre has developed to a more female-dominant event where the Cholitas are outshining their fellow male-wrestlers.
