... I needed Banos( toilets), a map for where we where going, the bank and some fuel. First we found the bank, there was a huge line up for the bank it was crazy ( apparently the ATM was out of money and they were waiting for the amour guard to turn up.) We had passed long queues for ATM's in the previous two towns with no cash there either, so we knew there was going to be a long wait.

Next stop: Tupiza!
