    Think we were the only ones staying in this huge colonial hotel. The building has character and is based around 2 colourful patios. Comfortable en suite room + good TV with standard Bolivian breakfast included. Wifi down during stay unfortunately. Very helpful staff who arranged our mine tour through American Tours.
    B$150 per room.

    Potosi, one of the highest cities in the world at 4,090m, is located 3 hours south of Sucre and we have traveled through it many times on our trips around Bolivia. Even when traveling north to La Paz we have found ourselves staring through the window at the silhouette of Cerro Rico ('Rich Hill.') However, this time we got off the bus to explore...< …

    ... cathedrals here, so we headed to the top of San Fransisco church for a rooftop view. We got lost quite a bit today, despite having a map. At one point we somehow went off the map! Being a hilly city, we found ourselves walking up and down roads and stairs in the hope of finding a street back on the map or, one we recognised! And to think we used to run tours! When we finally got back to our hotel, we headed to an awesome vegetarian restaurant for a cheap feast, before you guess it, went to ...

    ... up the road to the central market and had a wander round. It was huge and sold just about everything imaginable. We snaked our way through the narrowest of walkways between the stalls and eventually emerged outside. The market didn't stop there though, stalls were set up on every inch of the roadside on the streets around the main market.

    Near the market is San Bernando Square and church. It was really busy but there seemed to be a medical student thing going ...

    ... here. 'High thinkers' say 8m dead. (I read this in a rather wordy academic but interesting book called What if Latin America Ruled the World). Either way it's a big number. This is where the Spanish basically enslaved the locals, imported more slaves from Africa and mined silver to their hearts content. Nowadays the silver is practically exhausted and the miners that work there extract tin, lead and zinc among other filth. Miners work 12 hours a day for six days a ...

    ... lucky as the mines work a co-operative style system where everyone works for themselves and mine different areas. The miners work hard and die young with most of them having a life expectancy of 45-50 due to the hard labour, conditions & related illnesses. There are large amounts of toxic gases and elements like arsenic, cyanide & others in the mountain and over time this kills the miners. They don’t really have much of a choice as ...
