The atmospheric 'Witches Market' of La Paz, Bolivia

Located in the Cerro Cumbre area of the city, the Mercado de las Brujas has a profusion of shops run by shamans who follow Pachamama (Mother Earth) and hawk the likes of potions, medicinal plants and hother herbal/folk remedies, amulets, talismans, and desiccated bodies of naimals including frogs, armadillos, and most famously llama fetuses.
