    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...< …

    ... 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 ...

    ... isn’t much other work in Potosi and definitely not much for the huge amounts of people. Our first stop was the miners market where the miners buy their supplies. We stopped there to pick up supplies for them as thanks for letting us see them work. We ended up buying them dynamite ($3), 96%25 alcohol ($2) & Coca Leaves ($1), with these awesome 3 party items we headed up towards the mine for a great night out! A Japanese person on our tour ...

    ... like a sweetish meat and vege pastie sold everywhere here in Bolivia) and off we go to the tour.There are 12 of us of various nationalities and we are split into English and Spanish guided groups. We are in a group of 4 with 2 Swiss gys and our guide. We are driven to a market where we buy gifts to take to the miners we will see in the active mine. We are advised to take them soft drinks, coca leaves (which are chewed for the altitude and energy for them to work) ...

    ... didn't have visas and the rest of us were grand. After much talks between our guide and border control, they paid a fine (which was cheaper than the visa anyway) and they were allowed in. Once inside the border there's a ***** load of electrons shops. Some trade agreement with China is going down here, so they're incredibly cheap. Spotted a 36inch LG tv for 50USD. We head on to Trinidad-Hohenau , another 600km drive, staying at Mantanial Park, for 2 nights. After a ...
