... in our protective clothing which included a jacket, pants, rubber boots, and a helmet with light. We drove first to one of the processing plants to see how they separated the minerals from other parts of the rock. We then headed to the mountain and went in the mine. It was extremely dark and we definitely needed our headlamps. Some parts were also really low so we had to squat down low to walk. Overall many of the people in Bolivia are much shorter than people in ...

... wasn't a lot of options. I was mildly affected by the altitude again, but thank god not as badly as in la Paz. I had also got some more altitude tablets, and hoped being in sucre at 2000 feet for 2 weeks had helped.

Surrounded by snow capped volcanoes thousands of metres high and clear blue skies, dry dust blowing in the windows, the noise of the engine and wheels on gravel, but on stopping, quiet and complete stillness.

... that we could do a tour on Sunday, but that there would be no mining taking place. After some deliberation, we decided to do the tour on Monday morning, leave our bags in the hostel, and get a later bus to Uyuni, the next stop. We also discovered that pretty much everything is shut in Potosi (actually, in Bolivia) on a Sunday.

In the evening of Saturday 21st, we met up with David and Jen from our Pantanal trip, which was ...
