Ascent Trip Report

Honestly, I don't remember if I made it to the top or not. I remember walking up passing a miner guy who gave me coca leaves, I gave him a candy bar or something. My journal is not much help, except for telling me I spent the night on the 28th in Potosí (kept awake by some loud English tourists).

I came from from Uyuni; after Potosí I went to Sucre and then on to La Paz.
