... creepy dried up ones are used in all kinds of ceremonies as good luck. Don't ask me why a dried up fetus of a llama is good luck. But down here, in the land of "little green men" and bed bugs, it makes sense to them. And the candy thing, if you give money to the little "candy monument", it gives you luck too.

Rosie was pretty impressed and we told him "don't worry, it's one of many!" The next day we just chilled and check out the town. It was strange, part hippy town, part traditional Bolivian town.
