    ... picked us up and off we went. First stop was to see the process for collecting and prepare it for market. Very small local business. Hygiene of course is out the window, so with their hopes of exporting, they need to improve their facilities. Needless to say there was a market here too, so brought myself an old world map and some salt block candle holders. I'm sure they'll look lovely on my sideboard as they gather dust. Off across the flats we went. No idea how long ...

    ... my padlock keys inside my locker at the hostel (a Spanish man with a screwdriver eventually saved the day), I'd accidentally ripped a 10 Boliviano note in half (to put that in context it's worth about £1) and I wasn't sure whether I was even at the correct bus station.

    ... recommended to us by one of our salt desert buddies - German Caro - who would later join us there. But before walking to our new hostel we dropped off our laundry - it is impossible to find a place to wash your laundry yourself, so we left a communal 12 kg of washing (the majority were my clothes) to be picked up only 7 hours later for the crazy price of 10 bolivianos or 95 cents per kilo. We then dropped our things off at the new hostel - which looked really really ...

    ... rate is about 8 and having seen the conditions, etc, I can see why.

    After the spectacularly endowed (apparently to represent fertility and machismo - no women work in the mine) Tio was honoured, we headed through several more dusty, damp tunnels reeking of harmful gases, to see some explosive setting by some friendly chaps, before finally seeing light at the end of the tunnel. Happy to be out in the fresh air and for the ridiculous waiver we signed not to ...
