El Cerro Rico

A travel blog entry by wildkriv on Dec 12, 2013

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...< …

South America - Part 6 of Many!! Potosi to Iguassu

... It's like something straight out of a movie set. Afterwards we headed out into the salt flats and got to mess around and take some cool pics. On the way back to town we stopped off and saw the abandoned trains which the government dumped many years ago, after they forced the British out. An act of defiance against them really to say we don't want you or your infrastructure. When they dumped them, they were all working. Not it's like a scrap yard that has been raided for ...

Sick Day

A travel blog entry by tamararae on Jul 08, 2014

... We went to a farmacia as this is the only place you can buy drugs. I asked for some headache tablets – paracetamol or ibuprofen. They had neither of these and gave me something else. I’m sure it’s fine but I can’t find anything about it in English on the net so too scared to take it – and don’t know what dose to take as they only sell you a sleeve of them – not a ...

... was almost a relief when he nodded off...with his head resting on my shoulder. Finally with some peace and quiet, I was able to gaze out of the window at the beautiful scenery flashing past. Then I noticed the cacti littered all over the landscape, which had an uncanny likeness to, um, willies. I wish I had one of my friends there who has the same dreadfully immature sense of humour as me. Instead I had to giggle on my own - but not ...

Potosi is all mine

... down the mine we went. This was no tourist trip to Laxey Mine in the Isle of Man, where you can stroll along a well-lit, spacious tunnel for about 50 meters before you have to turn back. This was shuffling along narrow passages ankle-deep in water and crawling through tiny tunnels with razor-sharp pieces of rock digging into your knees. So this is why they need the 96 per cent alcohol. I'm quite proud of myself for only ...

    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.
