Cholita Wrestling and the Witches Market

We have been enjoying our time in La Paz. Last night we went to the Titans of the Ring: Cholita Wrestling and saw some Bolivian Style lucha libre, including traditionally dressed women performing piledrivers on guys in oversized children´s costumes. Unfortunately, my camera died before the real “cholita” action began, but here are a few shots of the event.

We also took a stroll through the famed witch market where they sell llama fetuses, folk rememedies (Sean was offered San Pedro when he asked for something to help him with stomach illness), and “magical” figurines.

And a quick Youtube video to help you appreciate the grandeur of Cholita Wrestling.
