Potosi was an eye-opening experience. An entire city which only exists because of one mineral rich mountain. Whole generations of families mining the mountain, with boys starting at the age of 14. Work all day in the mines and, if you're lucky and driven enough, study at night. If you're ever unhappy with your job, I recommend visiting the mines of Potosi. Since they ...

We didn't come here for any other reason than Tarija to Uyuni was apparently an "impossible" bus option from Tarija's laughable excuse for a bus station ...

I managed to find a good cup of coffee here before I headed to Uyuni, my last stop in my whistle stop tour of ...
