La Virgen de Urqupiña
Seeing as last week we learned how to go clubbing like a Bolivian, it seems only right that this week we’re learning how to fiesta like a Bolivian. This week’s party is to celebrate the Virgin of Urkupina in the town of Quillacollo, about 13km from Cochabamba. They say the virgin Mary appeared on the hillside to a young shepardess, and now every year people come to celebrate for 3 to 15 days by dancing in the streets in a 12 hour parade slash street party. Some how I made it home camera still in hand, so enjoy the shots from Quillacollo!
