Video report of visit to silver mines Potosi

The highest city in the world Potosí (Bolivia) is dependant of mining. Many thousands of man and also hundreds of children daily go into the mines. Looking for tin, lead and zinc. Today we, Amigos of the foundation Amigos de Potosí will go a lump into the mines. Only a small lump, where the galleries are relatively wide. But at first we buy gifts for the miners: Cola, coca leaves and dynamite. And offers for El Tío, the devil whose kingdom we will enter…

From this visit that we made on October 14 2014 a video report has been made, that shows in an impressive way the hard life of those miners.
