Andean Carnival

Carnival is a widely celebrated tradition among the Andean peoples of Bolivia. On a photographic trip around the country, while passing through the archaeological site of Tiahuanaco, I was able to accompany the procession of these traditional residents in the city next to the site. With their clothes, typical music and a lot of party, the procession cut the streets of the small village.
