    ... and hide from that. Prior to arriving we had been told we might see jaguars, ocelots, sloths, monkeys or Andean bears, what we did see was a toucan, butterflies, some small frogs, a small green snake, parakeets, lizards, a big scarab beetle and some witchety grub type bugs. I rest my case. We also saw jaguar footprints and poop, signs that they were in the area, but probably hiding from the racket. Ross had made a wild promise to get a jaguar tattoo if we saw one so ...

    After saying goodbye to all our friends in Uyuni (for real this time!) we hopped on the morning bus to Potosi. Potosi is the highest city in the world at 4060 meters above sea level.

Some men laugh and call me loco (crazy). As we get a little way up past the photo op, I spot a heap of police with guns, patrolling the area. I was ...

    ... full of Silver as well as other precious minerals, soon after the exploitation of the mine the city became the primary producer of colonial Spanish coins and was also one of the richest cities on earth, although you certainly wouldnt guess that now. We set off for the mines at 6am after a night of many 'Cuba Libre's" and an interesting experience at the most happening Karaoke Bar in Potosi, needless to say we weren't in the best state to walk 3 kilometres through a silver mine. After ...

    ... huge downpour and the streets were flooded almost instantly so we took refuge in the Cathedral and waited for it to die down... for two hours. Still, it killed some time and was welcomingly relaxing.

    In the evening, while passing the time by indulging in a few beers, it occurred to us that the overnight bus couldn't be 9pm to 6am the next day since, according to the Lonely Planet, it was meant to be about 20 hours long, so it would probably get to the ...
