... is they push and pull the 1 tonne container and when they need to change train track there isn’t a magic signal or lever they have to stop and get 4-5 of them to lift it onto the new tracks. To stop the train they use their bodies as a break. I had a go at pushing the 1 tonne container and while it was hard to push it stopping it once you were flying along the mine shaft was really hard.

The coca leaves are chewed by the miners all day as it is said to numb the senses and stave off hunger and exhaustion. Down the mine the men - who ...

Let's just say we weren't disappointed ;) Walking back to our hostels we arranged to meet up the next day to discover the city together. And though we had a good nights sleep, neither the showers nor the breakfast performed up to our expectations and the value for money so that Pia and I checked out and decided to check into a hostel ...
