Potosi, Bolivia

Llamas by the roadside on the way to Potosi, Bolivia. The fortune inherited by Rodrigo came from the "Mountain of Silver" the Potosi silver mine in Bolivia. "Off to this ominous site tomorrow, with a private driver after driving across the salt flats of Bolivia. The site is called Volcan Tunupa, Volcano of the Creator...elongated giant skulls..." "Today I will cross this, Salar Uyuni in southern Bolivia, in search of elongated skulls...." Crown made from Potosi silver. The historic cathedral of Potosi.
