|We are on our way to Tupiza. This a mountain pass about two hours|
from Cochabamba. Bolivia has mountains after mountains.
|Potosi was were we stayed the first night. We visited with the Elders and|
delivered some packages and mail to them. This is a mining town. They mine silver here.
|We parked the truck here for the night in a high walled|
locked gate parking area. You do not leave your automobiles
parked on the streets at night anywhere in Bolivia. Lloyd is
standing by an old adobe wall in the parking area.
|The streets are very narrow in Potosi. When these buildings were built they did|
not plan for cars and buses. We stayed in the Hotel El Turista on the right.
It was early May and it was very cold that night. The elevation is about 13.000.
|What the country looked like between Potosi and Unyuni.|
Not snow on the hills but alkalie. We are getting close to
the world famous Uyuni Salt Flats.
