February 3rd- Uyuni to Potosi
Got back to Uyuni last night and went out for a nice dinner. Steak, fries, and vegetables for $2.25. 2 beers ran the tab up another $1.25.
Then grabbed the 9am bus to Pitosi, which is a mining town 6 hours east.
Found a hostel (private room) for $2.75 per night. A new record. The good news is that despite the recent stock market slump, you´re still rich in Bolivia.
Met a couple from Switzerland and set up our tour of the silver mine for tomorrow.
Check out the pics of my room and the courtyard at the hotel. A little banged up but quite a bit of character.
Also, the lady in the first pic was on our bus with the baby slung behind.
