La Corrida de toros – Fiesta de la Virgen de la Candelaria, Copacabana, Bolivia

I’ve watched Bullfights in Spain and Mexico but the thing i liked about Bolivian bullfights is that the bull isn’t hurt or killed, the only weapon used against the beast is a water pistol. These bullfights pictured marked the end of the Fiesta de la Virgen de la Candelaria in Copacabana, it was a typically chaotic and crazy event, most of the men had been on the lash all day, for the last 3 or 4 days, this imbued some with a suicidal / impressive level of bravado to face the wild animal.
