February 2017 - Bolivia / Oruro - Portrait of a miner in front of his house, shaking his jacket blackened by his work. . A few days before the official carnival, the miners march from the bottom of the hill to the mine for hours, gathering their own ancestral beliefs to the Christian rites imported by the Spaniards. Drinks and folklore spread for hours. This parade remains relatively poor, the modest level of minors, and does not include directly in the official carnival. The carnival of Oruro is the biggest annual cultural event of Bolivia. Carnival celebrated in the city of Oruro, the capital of folklore of the country, it is part of the festival Ito in honor of the Uru people. "The Oruro Carnival" was inscribed in 2008 by UNESCO on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
