After a couple of months at altitude you would think that heading to Potosi would give us no concern at all. That is actually the case except between the hours of 3-5am every night in bed when my body decides i cant breathe. Anyway im yet to die from it.
Potosi is famous for its working silver mine. A tourist attraction sees you head deep down into the mine whilst the poor miners are working down there. A couple of factors lead to us not heading down there.
1. I dont want to see a mine
2. I like oxygen
3. I dont like asbestos
4. Beaconsfield mining disaster
5. Chilean mining disaster
Anyway the town itself is definitely nice enough in its own right to earn a visit even if you dont go crawling 100m underground.
Climbed a church tower
