This well adorned fellow is Ekeko, a celebrated god of luck and prosperity. Bestow him with representations of the things that you wish for, such as money & food, then stuff a cigarette into his waiting mouth.
Vuela-vuela, no te hace falta equipaje (ni alas): Este martes, Bolivia estrenó una línea de teleférico que conecta a las ciudades de La Paz y El Alto. Este es el recorrido de teleférico urbano mas alto del mundo, ya que está a 4 mil metros sobre el nivel del mar. El teleférico boliviano recorre en 24 minutos una ruta que requeriría 1.5 o 2 horas en automóvil. [x]

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.
