We left the
hotel in a private mini bus for the drive through more stunning mountain
scenery and valleys to the highest city of its altitude called Potosi. The
altitude was 4800m. We had a brief orientation walk around the city centre but
the main plaza and the surrounding public areas were closed and surrounded by
