witches´ market in La Paz
No visit to La Paz is complete without taking in the sights, sounds and smells of the city´s ´witches´market´. The market gives an intriguing glimpse into the normally hidden world of native Indian mysticism and belief systems. You will see stall upon stall sellign such curiosities as dried llama foetuses and all manner of other lotions and potions, and the crowds of locals buying up basketfuls of the stuff assure you that this is no gimmicky market put on for the entertainment of tourists.
If you want to take photographs of the stalls and sellers it is polite to make a donation or buy something - although perhaps not one of the dried llama foetuses! [more]
