    ... streets, dancing girls accompanied by brass bands and these ornate rattles making a sound much like those oldskool footy rattles. It was probably a good thing that the Friday night festivities ended at midnight as we had a 7am start the next morning for the real reason for our visit to Potosi.

    Potosi is home to the Cerro Rico - "The Mountain that eats men". More conservative academics, known as the 'low thinkers' estimate 2 million people have died in ...

    ... lucky as the mines work a co-operative style system where everyone works for themselves and mine different areas.

At 1pm feeling a little better we head to the tour office and order bus tickets, eat a ...

    ... need to go back and review this part of the tour. It's not what you'd called a good representation of Argentina. 4 nights stuck out in countryside with hardly any activities available. 12th July Up and leave by 6am to make our way towards the border. Some mozzies are back again as I have woken up with a bit beside my eye and one on my nose. I'll have no blood left if they keep biting me. We cross the border into Paraguay. The Ozzie and NZ girls were stuck for a while ...
