The 'Day of the Dead' occurs on the second of November each year, and I was lucky to witness one in La Paz, in Bolivia's capital, back in 2007.
In fact, I accidentally stumbled into that year's Day of the Dead, as I was walking around the steep streets of the highest capital city in the world, and I was wondering why the La Paz cemetery was full of people.
I asked one of the locals in Spanish, and he said to me 'es El Dia de Los Muertos'. It was the Day of the Dead.
