We decided to spend only one night in Uyuni after our salt flats tour as, well, there was nothing there. So we made our way over to the bus station (by station I mean a street with several stalls where you can buy tickets!) where we encountered our first pleasant surprise of Bolivia - the bus to our next destination, Potosi (a meagre 5 hours away) was just shy of 2 pounds per person. We'd had some mixed reviews about Potosi from travellers heading in the other direction - Beautiful but ...

Cruise through Santa Cruz

... but our hostel owner advised us against it due to the condition of the roads. When even a Bolivian tells you to avoid the roads, you know to take it seriously. And I'm glad we did. Rather than bouncing along a bumpy, tarmac-less road for 20 hours, we caught a flight for a little extra money which took just 30 minutes. Ha!

Feeling pleased with ourselves and our effortless journey, we arrived fresh-faced at the airport. Then, whoa!, the heat hit us. ...

It was sad seeing how much they struggle and wish to have a better life away from the mines. I'm not sure how much has changed since then but from what I gather they get ...

Welcome to Bolivia (Part 2:extra) Posted wrong one

... and people were not helpful. Also annoyed that the hostel cost me more then I thought. But it very chilled with lots of hammocks and a mini 'beach'. That night we had a BBQ and some caipirinhas that the brazilians made. I got taught to make one. Got to learn and practice lots of Spanish because most of the people here were from South America but there were a few other nationalities about. Including one American who swore me to not tell anyone his age, he was 60 but had work done so looks ...
