... 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 ...

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.

... 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 ...
