Oruro was founded in the 17th century as a silver mining centre, much like Potosi.  We visited the Iglesia de la Virgen del Socavón, which is built above a defunct mine.  The church is full of symbology and plaques related to mining and the hardships experienced by the miners.  

El Tio is a character common in mines in Bolivia.  He simultaneously represents protection and destruction.

Salteñas are a kind Bolivian empanadas filled with meat, chicken or other meats, egg and spices. It is a typical popular finger food in Bolivia. They are slightly different in flavor from regular empanadas. Salteñas have an element of sweetness found in both the dough and the filling.

The name salteñas is inspired by the city of Salta, Argentina where the creator of salteñas was originally from. Culinary historians widely acknowledge that Juana Manuela Gorriti created saltenas while living in Bolivia. Saltena translates literally from Spanish as “female citizen of Salta.”
