Bolivians on Monday raised their hands to the first rays of sunlight in celebration of Andean New Year 5529, gathering in reduced numbers at different sacred indigenous sites while heeding Covid-19 protocols.

The festival of the Return of the Sun, known as "Willkakuti" in the Aymara language and "Inti Raymi" in Quechua, was celebrated in places like Mirador Killi Killi, a hill offering a panoramic view of La Paz where dozens assembled.
