There is nothing really to report about our stay in Potosi. It is a town that houses silver mines and used to be an extreme source of wealth. This does not show in the current climate.


I found a cheap chicken a chips place ($1.50 for a massive feed) so ate that for every meal.


Other than that the highlights consisted …

We staan vanochtend om zes uur op om op tijd bepakt en bezakt klaar te staan om door een busje opgehaald te worden en met andere reizigers naar de grenspost van Chili gebracht te worden. We zullen de prachtige Atacama woestijn hier in Chili verlaten om ons op de allerhoogste bergen van Zuid-Amerika, de Andes, te gaan wagen. Nu maar hopen dat de kou …

En toen waren we dan ineens in Bolivia, het armste en (men zegt) minst toegankelijke land voor toeristen. We kijken onze ogen uit naar alle weelderige kleuren die terugkomen in de kleding en draagzakken van de vrouwen, al dan niet met een kindje erin. De bolhoedjes die de vrouwen hier dragen maken het echt authentiek boliviaans! Prachtig! Vanuit …
