Bolivians on Tuesday attended the annual Wish Fair in La Paz. They purchased miniature versions of what they want in the coming year: cars, houses and wads of fake dollar bills, in the hope of making their dreams come true in 2023.

The tiny items are taken home and placed around Ekeko, who the Aymara people believe will bless them with better lives in the coming year.A larger version of Ekeko stands inside the fair covered in money and objects people have pinned to him for good luck.
