Ciudad minera Potosi (mining town)

12 and 13 Nov 2012

I must be half asleep whilst I got off the night coach last night... I can't believe I slipped and fell from the coach and now i would have to change the dressing of my wound myself till it healed!

Potosi is an old silver mine town which its mine is apparently also open to the public for tours . I didn't join the silver mining tour as i was told to be prepared for its worst working conditions. Besides, i don't think my allergy would go too well with the dust .

Martina and I walked around the city that morning. We wanted to visit the coin museum that morning but it was closed. Everywhere we walked, we saw plenty of 'abogado ' (lawyer) signs. I gather there must be lots of litigations between employees and the mining company.

The next morning we visited the coin museum as we would be leaving Potosi in the afternoon to Uyuni.
