    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.

    ... we were driving in the clouds are things I just can't experience in Australia.

    Potonsi is one of the top three highest cities in the world at 4090 feet, and has a rich mining history, including current day exploitation of child miners in cerro Rico (rich hill) where they mine for silver and tin, amongst some other minerals. The Cerro Rico is the reason for Potosí's historical importance, since it was the major supply of silver for ...

    ... really safe despite the terrain we were passing through. We absolutely loved sitting watching it all go by, stopping sometimes for snacks or photos of just stunning crystal clear landscapes, passing breathless lagoons, so quiet and motionless in the thin air, their dissolved minerals and algae producing wild colours under the high clear sky. We saw bright pink flamingos, wild foxes, Chilean rabbits, rare birds and weird rock formations (spot the Salvador Dali paintings). It was ...

    ... on our first destination! A little different to Anna who hit it hard and got in at 5:20...she looked well prepared for the flight! No one feeling that social, it was a quiet flight to Salta to say the least. However after a little shut eye on the plane we were ready to explore the city! Vanessa, our guide for the next few weeks, showed us all the places we would need...pharmacy and food. After a chilled day we went for a meal with everyone, yet another steak for me, I ...

    ... see all of the amazing architecture, very European, definitely reminded me of Paris, miss that city! On our stop we had the most incredible ice cream, dolce de leche granicardo (or at least something sounding like that), much needed after the workout! We then had a stop off in the famous cemetery, before returning, however Anna didn't make it very far with her suddenly getting a flat wheel, Frederico, one of our guides, came to the ...

    The Silver Heart of the Spanish Empire!

    ... br> Potosi used to be the centre of the Spanish empire. It is a huge mining town, and the silver mine there has been worked in for over 500 years, but probably only has about 10 more years left of mining. The town centre also contains the mint that used to produce silver coins for South American and European countries. Coming into the city it looked very ugly and industrial, but the centre had quite a lot of nice old ...
