    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.

    Heading to Potosi Bolivia was our first stop after the Salar de Uyuni tour. We arrived in Uyuni which isnt mush of a town so headed straight to Potosi on the bus. The bus itself was a new experience, no longer the comforts of the buses around Argentina and Chile!! Poor local children were standing for the 4hour journey and falling asleep. So Jimmy had one little boy on his lap fast asleep and Bronagh and I shared a seat and let a little girl sit down. She slept with her head rested ...

    ... full of dust, very little oxygen, could make everybody claustrophobic. In front of me was the guide followed by Marc. The rest was behind me. When the tunnel narrow in, Celine called down, that they did not want to continue... I called back I would move forward to let the guide know, but suggested they kept moving though. After 1 minute I couldn't hear them any more, and I realised, in front I lost sight of the guide and Marc. Tried not to panic when I ...

    ... was nearly as pink as the flamingos for a while. What a nobbin.


    By the end of the day we were all tired and dusty from bumping around but thrilled with the day. We arrived at our first night stop - no one was there initially (we were informed it was election day in Bolivia and people were fined if they didn’t vote so no food/rest for us until they returned). The accommodation was basic in the extreme. We had been warned to expect it and made the best of it but oh boy ...

    We left the Salar in hopes of making it to the outskirts of Potosi. Didn't happen ;0). A huge weather system was moving in so we turned off the road and found a camp spot. We set up quickly and Craig was able to get some great pics of the system moving in, and luckily in never hit us. Woo ...

    ... place to work. Four miners died last year from accidents in the mine, and 10,000 men still work in the mine. The mine itself sits at a further 800 metres above sea level to the rest of the city.

    The tour started with a trip to a miners market, where we purchased some gifts for the miners (juice, coca leaves, quinoa burnt root activator for the coca leaves, writing paper for the children). Then we went to get our ...
