4000 meters and stil going higher, Potosi

Day 22 (159 km)

      Woke up with having mixed feelings, if all is going to work out for me today. The truck driver carried us with his truck to an area what had plenty of repair shops and ended up buying 4 rear inner tubes, enduro style, another tire brand new ( Pirelli) and then we put it all together and  I would hope , this would solve my problems, went back to his house,  installed the wheel again 

( this only takes 5 minutes now), packed up everything and left for Potosi on a beautiful mountain road, reaching most of the time 4000 meters plus. It seems the tire is holding up, but still not too confident. The amount of spare tires and inner tubes, I carry now on the bike is ridiculous, I even start considering a tire shop here in Bolivia, there must be money in it!

    Reached Potosi  3 hours later, treated us on a good fancy hotel with all the amenities after not have taken a bath for 3 days, walked around town, trying to breath and tomorrow morning a tour in the medieval silver mines and then to Uyuni, what actually the highlight of this trip will be for me.
