Internet getting very slow now. Hope everyone is fine & will update more very soon.
Love The Watties
We made it to Potosi (along with Chris & Lianne) with Bernie keeping his dignity & was happy to take the recommendation of the lonely planet for our first place we stayed (Hostel Maria Victoria) however I think they have gone downhill since it was published. We are very aware that the lonely planet sometimes must be taken with a grain of salt however they do have good maps!! Our room we had we thought was worst then the other guys as it did not have a window & was smallhowever they gazumpted us when they discovered a smell of wee coming from their mattress. It was not long & we were all off to sleep. Poor Bernie still not feeling 100% & at 4070 metres above sea level it was exhausting even walking down hill. Also not sure how they have calculated it but the showering time for guests was 8 minutes.
