We are going to the main square of La Paz called Plaza Murillo. On the way, we encountered a mysterious festival.
The largest Alasitas fair is an annual month-long cultural event starting on January 24th in La Paz. It honors Ekeko, the Aymara god of abundance, and is noted for the giving of miniature items.
The indigenous Aymara people observed an event in the pre-Columbian era, when people prayed for good crops and exchanged basic goods. Over time, it evolved to accommodate elements of Catholicism and Western acquisitiveness.
The Ekeko is the Tiwanakan god of abundance and prosperity in the mythology and folklore of the people from the Andean Altiplano (high plain, Quechua and Aymara area).

I didn’t know anything about the Alasitas. Even now, I am not sure about it. So you should visit this site, http://www.lapazlife.com/alasitas-festival/
Left the Alasita market, we are going to the main Square of La Paz.
And the next stop is the Plaza del Estadio (Stadium Square) also called Plaza Tejada Sorzano.
Estadio Hernando Siles is a sports stadium in La Paz. It is the country’s largest sports complex with a capacity of 41,143 seats. It is named after Hernando Siles Reyes, the 31st President of Bolivia (1926–1930).
This is a replica of the semi-underground temple of the archaeological complex of Tiwanacu.
