MINI BELIEVE IT OR NOT –
In June of 2014, the government of La Paz, Bolivia ordered that the numbers on the clock on the congress building be reversed.
- The hands turn to the left, and the numbers were inverted
- Bolivian Foreign Minister David Choquehuanca dubbed it the “clock of the south”
- The clock was made to show Bolivian people that it’s good to be creative and question norms
- The government has said that they will not require everyone in Bolivia to change their clocks
“BIONs” – short for Believe It or Not – is the word we use at Ripley’s to refer to anything that is unbelievable and worthy to become part of Ripley’s lore and collection.
