    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.

    ... meaning we had to jump to the side to let a mine cart zoom past with two guys hanging off the back of it. At one point we sat down and the whole mountain (well it felt like the whole mountain) started shaking as some dynamite was detonated a hundred metres away! The whole experience was awesome and I videos the whole thing on my go pro so I'll show you some footage next time I see ...

    ... I'll spare the details but the laxatives did exactly what they said on the tin. I felt like a new man walking back to the table and was happy as Larry. No more than 5 mins had passed before I was batting down the toilet door again. This carry on continued throughout the day. It was incessant. At one point as I sat there on the throne with my head in my hands and sweating so much I came to the conclusion that the ...

    ... 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 ...

    Highest city in the world. Altitude around 4000 m. Arriving to the station, I guess I was use to the altitude in som level, because I literally didn't noticed until we start moving. I mean it was less then 2 km to the hostel, but quickly I fell behind gasping for air. Feeling I have the worst fitness ever... But hey, you try Carry around 17 kg just a tiny bit uphill in that altitude.... Still I was the slowest, with Celine, jan, max, jasmin, Marc and Imogen in ...

    It was our first real experience of driving on almost non existent roads in a ...
