Dangerous dancing in Bolivia…
The Fiesta San Miguel is famous for its dangerous Tinku dances that represent the fight between good and evil. Dressed as conquistadores, local families jump and dance swinging their arms wildly, whilst referees (including the whip bearing local Bolivian police) try to oversee the ever increasing chaos. Many have been injured and some have even died, it is thought that the more blood spilled the richer the harvest will be.
