Hiking in the hills around Potosi

Our hacienda produces it's own electricity from a hydro station which used to supply the city but has since been nationalised by  the socialist government, plus cheese, yoghurt, wine, meat and all their fruit and veggies. The local villages support and are supported by the hacienda.

The countryside is spectacular and the villagers friendly. Every single person says good morning and you just wander through the hills. We are feeling rather humbled by the genuine openness and generosity of spirit of the people we are meeting.

Still puffing and panting up these hills, but must be improving soon! All in preparation for the huge 4 day trek in a day or so - - - - -
