Bolivia lies at the heart of the South American plate, thus is old rock not likely to shatter. This will be pushed higher in altitude during the shift, but not by much, and the latitude will not be much more distance from the new equator after the shift than before, so life will continue much the same for survivors. The sun will rise in a different location, and the skies more cloudly due to volcanic dust, and this will puzzle the rustic folk living in the mountains. But lying above the low atmosphere where most of the volcanic dust will linger as it settles provides advantages, as there will be clear days on occasion. Life will be harder, as everywhere, due to less vegetation, but those used to living a simple life will find ways to cope, unlike those in cities used to soft living. The rural peoples of Bolivia will be survivors.
