Car Decorated for Traditional Blessing of Vehicles, Bolivia

Copacabana is the main Bolivian town on Lake Titicaca. On weekends owners park their vehicles in front of the cathedral to receive an elaborate 'cha'lla' or ritual blessing from priests. They decorate their vehicles and make petitions to the Virgin for protection.
