    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...< …

    ... to create the pictures! That evening we stayed at another basic hotel at the bottom of a volcano, on the edge of the salt flats. Llamas were everywhere. We even ate llama for dinner! Our bedroom was a hut made out of salt(!!!) with a straw roof. It was surprisingly warm. Another eco toilet which I wouldn't say we were used to yet. A better night sleep than the day before and we were ready to head out to the salt flats for our artistic and clever photos. It was great ...

    ... which took us up to almost 5000m before entering the mine amidst the dust and gloom of a fully underground mine (the majority of Australia`s mines are open pit mines). Being at such a height and now stuck inside a mine can make breathing quite difficult and even towards the top it was starting to heat up. We were told before the tour we would not be going into any areas where we had to bend down much or get into serious claustrophobic situations but after 20-30 minutes of walking along ...

    ... leaves. After munching on them he seemed to perk up a bit.

    Perhaps he drove this way all the time, there are stories that Bolivian drivers are not always in the best state to drive. We arrived safely in Potosi and he managed to find our Koala Den Hostel without directions.

    The Koala Den hostel was really big with a really bright central atrium and common area. The bed in our room took up most of it and left just enough space for a ...

    Into Potosi's terrible mines

    ... went vertical into the side of
    the mountain. We went only about 500 metres and sat in a large cavity where we
    met a group of miners coming out at the end of their working day. They were
    pretty rough looking and sweating heaps. The guide told us that the youngest working
    in the mines these days is 14 and one of the miners we met was in his late 50’s.
    Obviously a lot die young from the fumes and the terrible working conditions. While
    we were in one spot the smell ...
