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...< …

Our team, Bolivar, did win it one - nill
To watch this with locals was quite the thrill

And tired as I was the next morning on checkout
Having fun in Potosi, was what it was all about

... the ride we did climb to over 11,000ft, so a natural disorientation greeted us as we got off the bus in La Quiaca and began walking to the border. We quickly got stamped out of Argentina, and after paying the $135 reciprocity fee and filling out several papers, we received our Bolivian visas.

... as in colonial times. He said it can take him a whole day to chisel a 50cm long hole to put a stick of dynamite in. Despite his hard luck, he was friendly and happy to answer our questions. We also met the 'Tio' of the underworld (the Quechua speakers struggle to say 'dios' (god) so it became 'tio'). This is a life size statue of a devil-type character who sits in a little alcove in the mines. The miners visit him on the first Friday of the month to ask for his help to ...

... never hit the big "vein, " so has spent his years selling large quantities of low quality ore to the refineries for cash. To accumulate and sell enough to make a living for his family requires long hours and many shifts. In fact, it is not at all unusual for miners to work 24 hour shifts, chewing coca leaves the entire time to dull pangs of hunger and fatigue.

    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.
