Potosi is a mining town that used to be famous for its silver. There is no silver left in the Cerro Ricco (Rich Mountain) anymore but people still mine it for other minerals such as Zinc. I didn’t go down the mine because I don’t like dark cramped spaces but my friends went right down inside the mountain to see what it would be like to work there. Though they got to blow up some dynamite which was scary and exciting, they said it was very hot, uncomfortable and dangerous. I don’t think I could be a miner, I prefer the fresh air and sunshine.
