Potosi (mines) and Tarija (wine region)

Did we mention it was cramped and dark? Half the time Kurt had to duck down but still hit his head a few times. Each time the guide asked us, you wanna go down one more level? Er, sure, I guess. Oh btw, to repeat Potosi is 4000m and the mines are 4200m (12,600ft). So, bit hard to breathe and adding cramped dark dusty mine tunnels does not help. You end up gasping sometimes, yet you don't want to breathe too deeply.
