A man carries a decorated human skull or "natita" inside the Cementerio General chapel during the Natitas Festival celebrations in La Paz, Bolivia, Friday, Nov. 8, 2013. The Roman Catholic church considers the skull festival to be pagan, but it doesn't prohibit people from participating in it. Mass was not being held at the chapel on Friday, but a bowl of holy water was left out so people could bless the skulls they were carrying in the ritual celebrated a week after Day of the Dead.
