Where I stayed
This is a dusty little town which has a surprising number of basic but decent eateries. Bolivia all over! We took a walk with Dominik, Rahel and Andy to the train graveyard. This is one of the few places of interest listed in each of our various guidebooks! We almost died twice as a result of visiting here - a Bolivian army training exercise was shooting in our direction! After much waving of the hands we decided it was best to take the long way round! On route hom Dominik shouted that there was a train on thenarow track we were walking along. 2 people whizzed passed on a teeny train that looked a bit like Thomas the Tank Engine!
After numerous cold nights we opted to stay in the swishes hotel in town. It was amazing, hot showers and cable tv!
We caught our highest altitude train headed to the Argentinian border. We opted luxury sleeper, no better than the Ediburgh to Glasgow train, but maybe 20 years older. It had an antique CRT telly showing Mr Bean.
