In this Nov. 28, 2013 photo, so-called “traffic cholitas” run laps during a training session in El Alto, Bolivia. About 20 so-called “traffic cholitas” have been trained to direct cars and buses in El Alto, the teeming, impoverished sister city of La Paz in the Bolivia’s Andes mountains. The indigenous traffic policewomen will also educate pedestrians and help old people to cross roads, said Jose Luis Varagas, head of El Alto’s transportation department. (AP Photo/Juan Karita) less
