Explosion! Pass the old gold.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vimZj8H W0Kg

Having left Scottish Marc behind as he'd already been to Potosi, Sita, Maike and I got a taxi for the long ride to the world's third highest city (4090m). After having to diffuse an argument between the girls and the driver over the sum of ten pounds between us for the 2.5 hour journey on a Friday night when there's a big festival on at our destination, we eventually settled into ...

A nice easy 3hr trip got us to Potosi the highest city in the world. It sits at over 4000m and in the shadow of the 4700m Cerro Rico (Meaning Rich Mountain).

The mines have been producing silver since the colonial times (1700s) and more recently tin, zinc, copper etc. The Spanish built there empire in the area on the huge amounts of silver from the mountain and many of the churches in South ...

... the news of (yet another) Bolivian strike roadblock at Uyuni, which was to be our next stop before doing a Salar de Uyuni tour into San Pedro de Atacama (Chile); sadly it seemed this was no longer possible. Hence we decided to head south to the small town of Tupiza to try to get in the back way (trains from here are reportedly running, but no information is reliable in Bolivia). Should this still not be possible, we will cross the border south into Argentina instead!

... bus walk in. So we are split I to 2 dorms, 7 in my one. After BBQ, people decided to numb the experience by drinking!! Bad idea! People got locked drunk and just story after story was unfolding. One if the girls took a guy back to our dorm, with everyone in bed and proceeded to have it off. And not quietly either. 9th July So tensions are at an all time high today after the boozy sessions so some of us head off into town to avoid it. Spend the day in town wandering ...
