Day Thirteen – Hi Ho, Hi Ho, It’s Off to Work We Go

(That was a Snow White reference)

I am so tired. Bullet point blog entry:

  • Got up early, wrestled with hot water in shower
  • Breakfast at Koala Den was delish
  • Took the Cerro Rico mine tour offered by the hostel
  • Humorous group mate had a difficult time coping with … some of the athletic requirements of the tour, but blamed the tour guide instead of herself
  • Wandered around town, found the central market and a delicious bakery, had some sort of tomato sauce, cheese and onion pastry for lunch, with a donut, and then a fruit, jello, whipped cream concoction that nearly broke my pancreas
  • Picked up delicious feta cheese and some veggies at the market
  • Had a nap
  • Went to the Candelaria (another Koala offshoot) and had another delicious quinoa soup with wine and then walked around Potosi
  • Note: have run into four Canadians in two groups at Koala Den, both groups from Edmonton. Wierd.
