Bolivia is one of those countries that many people I’ve met either bypass entirely or spend minimal time. Hell, I’m one of those only spending 2 weeks in a country that warrants a little more time! This is how I spent 2 weeks in this incredible country.
I’ve never been into an active mine, or any mine for that matter, but I had heard the stories about Cerro Rico, a once silver-rich mine dating back to the 1800’s that was one of the major suppliers of silver for the metal-hungry Spanish. Sure Marc, let’s go for a tour in an ancient mine, in the middle of nowhere. Great idea.
