During the numerous celebrations led in the city of Copacabana, on the shores of Titicaca Lake, one of the main
attraction is the vehicle’s inauguration
(also called ch’alla, ritual benediction).
From 10 am, every day, a lot of trucks, buses, cars, vans, come
in front of the cathedral and, decorated with ribbons, flowers, and other
decorations, they wait to be blessed with a little bit of alcohol so as the
owner does not suffer any accident all along his vehicle “life”.
Before to start again,
the vehicles receive a name and go back really protected.
