Whilst I was in La Paz, Bolivia, there was a religious festival happening in honour of the Virgen del Rosario (Our lady of the Rosary). As chance would have it, my hotel was next door to a church dedicated to the Virgen del Rosario, and from my hotel window, I had an amazing birds eye view down onto the celebrations below.
I had no idea that this festival was going to happen, but it proved to be an entertaining couple of days. The fiesta actually started just before midnight on the Friday, and I caught this little section on video.
The next morning, it became apparant that this festival would be an ongoing event for the weekend. Benches lined the streets, and people selling beer were ready! During the afternoon, a seemingly endless series of parades marched up and down the street.
It was quite a display… I just wished the bands had learned more songs as they all seemed to play the same one!
That night, huge speakers were moved into place, and fireworks were set up. I took a couple more videos!!
I guess if I had a video editor, I could make this one film.
But I don't, so a couple of short clips will have to do instead!
