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.

Morenada, a typical dance from La Paz that is mainly performed for Carnaval but you will see it at almost any occasion. Bolivians just love to dance!

Que disfruten esta Morenada del Grupo Llajtaymanta, 100% Boliviano, hecho en Bolivia.
