      ... alot and lets just say, the rocks became our friends. Maybe a rock would have been better for the hotel. They call it an 'eco toilet'. It looks like a toilet, but actually it leads to a hole in the ground. And you have to strategically go to the toilet in the correct part of the loo (if you get my drift)?! We all had an early night due to the altitude, sleeping at an altitude of 4100m is much harder that you think. We went to bed at 9.30pm! We shared a room with Sol - what ...

      ... during the trek. The trek was way harder than I expected and even matched the toughness of the Inca trail in my opinion. We had not done any serious trekking since June which also made it a lot difficult and for two days we spent 8 hours wandering through valleys and craters just outside of Sucre. The scenery was fantastic and we even got to see some dinosaur footprints preserved in the rock. We were proud to finish the tough walk and celebrate with some dodgy Bolivian red wine and ...

      We went on a mine tour today. Truly harrowing. The mines are in a mountain (Cerra Ricco) at about 4300m above sea level. The tour was 2 hours in dark, unlit mines. Suffering with mild claustrophobia, it was all I could do not to have a massive panic attack and run out the way we came in. Boys as young as 9 work here for up to 18 hours a day, so I shamed myself into carrying ...

      ... recommended to get there early because they sell out quick. There were quite a few left when we arrived and ordered one each. They look like a small Cornish Pastie with a hard pastry case.

We could quite easily have had a second one, but by the time we had finished the first, the shop had sold out.

      Into Potosi's terrible mines

      ... about it both for the danger of the mine but also the horror
      stories of these mines. These mines are very unique because they are located
      under the mountain which is right on the edge of town and they have been mined
      since the fifteen hundreds and following a miners revolution in the 1950’s the
      mines are now operated by what I believe is probably the closest thing you
      would get to pure communism. The miners work cooperatively in small groups to
      dig and they ...
