The mayor of La Paz Iván Arias lit the structure called the “Tea that Illuminates Bolivia” together with several municipal authorities in the Plaza del Montículo in Sopocachi. “We have called it the Tea that Illuminates Bolivia because Pedro Domingo Murillo’s cry for freedom does not stay here, but transcends the entire country, that is why we wanted to make this tea last year and every time, we are going to do it better,” said the authority. The torch has a lighting system of 2,000 spheres of LED lights that gave shape to the flame and 2,100 LED lamps with which the base of the torch was formed.
