This mining town in Bolivia is a modern age Wild West. Started off as a “gold rush” town except for silver, miners have been mining silver here for over a century, when the silver ran out the government stopped all the support for the mines and the ownership was handed over to the miners who continue to mine for other minerals under terrible conditions, using dynamite, breathing the dusty air, and staying in the darkness for hours. If the don’t die from frequent cave ins, than lung problems get them, life expectancy is around 45 for these men, who still choose this dangerous work because of the high pay. If you ever thought your job is hard, think again. • • • • #bolivia #potosi #voyager #travelmagazine #altiplano #somewheremagazine #reflections #travelmore #natgeoyourshot #createcommune #earthoutdoors #travelbag #bewild #optoutside #traveltheworld #beboundless #livefolk #experiencebolivia #laguna #explorebolivia #southamerica #roamtheplanet #visitsouthamerica #travelingthroughtheworld #beautifuldestinations #fantastic_earth #depthsofearth
