Potosí

Potosí is claims to be the highest city in the world (together with Amsterdam). Potosí is situated at a height of 4090 metres. There is a lot less oxygen at this height and combined with having the physique of a sloth with asthma, I was out of breath by every little effort we made. 368 more words

Potosi- Silver and slaughter, a mine tour

The city, claimed to be the world’s highest at 4100m+, is intrinsically linked to the mountain it flanks. 1,637 more words

A Day in Potosi 


I really really loved Potosi. After several days in a jeep, it was so nice to explore a city that felt truly Bolivian. Potosi reminded me so much of San Christobal, a beautiful colonial city that grows along the mountainsides. 218 more words
