Bolivia by Jerome on 15 February 2009 6:31pm
Hello Everyone,

I am in South Bolivia travelling north to Peru. Does ¡anyone have any good tips about must do things in this country?

I´m in a town called Potosi at 4500 metres asl and it´s bloody cold! And, that´s straight after a 3-day journey throught the desert.

Greetings,Jerome. Glad to hear from you.
Potosi in South Bolivia is famed for its silver mines,but standing at 13,400 feet above sea level,it is one of the highest cities in the world,so you may find you need to carry spare oxygen,as well as your buckskin jacket and gloves.

Bolivia of course has the Aracama desert,and also the Salar De Uyuni,the largest white salt desert in the world.

Please keep us posted on your travels in South America.

Hi Everyone,

I am in Sucre now, travelling north. This one of the nicest places I've been, the hostel too is great - called La Dolche Vita. I'll probably do some horseback riding here and then head off to La Paz in a few days.
