      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.

      ... seems the people of South America have more money than ever and are enjoying what us gringos have been enjoying for many years now. We have met Colombians, Chileans, Argentinians, Brazilians and Peruvians driving, cycling, motor biking, backpacking and travelling. Fair play, I think everybody deserves the chance to see what this amazing continent has to offer or in fact the whole world. At the end of our day we are all visitors on this huge tourist attraction called ...

I also added on my papaya fresh juice! Drinks was then at a small lane way bar where things got quite loud once the two g adventures groups met up ...

      Took an overnight bus from La Paz to Sucre and we are currently (after 12 hours) still sitting on the road 3 hours away from Sucre because of a road block the locals have set up across the road. They have parked their vehicles across the road about 1 mile ahead of us and are miners protesting to the government about their wages/ conditions etc. While we have been sitting here they actually set up a blockade behind us as well so even though we ...

      ... not feeling great. We actually slept through breakfast and went for a late lunch. We tried so hard to find a Chinese restaurant these past few days. There were apparently two, we found zero. Again, not very happy about it, we both had a soup as well as some cold pasta for Aurelie, and an egg roll for me. With not much else to see in this town, we went back to the hostel and rested some more (I fell asleep again) before trying again to find somewhere to eat. The evening ...

      Potosi is recognised as a UNESCO world heritage site and is the world's highest city at 13,420ft above sea level. The city came to fame due to it's Cerro Rico Mountain ('rich mountain'). During the colonial era the Spanish found Potosi's Rico Mountain was rich in silver, therefore the city became a major silver supplier for the new world Spanish empire.

      Native labourers were used to work the silver mines but many died due to the poor working conditions. To ...
