We left the miners to their work and visited the mine god on the way out via crawling through some tight tunnels and leaving our offerings at his altar. After 2hrs in the dark, dusty, hot & enclosed mine we were happy to return to the sunlight. What they do is truly incredible and hard work, I don’t envy them one bit and I can only feel a slight sense of awe ...
