Potosí in Bolivia is located at 4,090 meters and has over 170,000 inhabitants. With its colonial old town, built in the 17th and 18th centuries among the Spaniards, a proud city. Their wealth from the silver and tin ore but bought at a high price.
On the outskirts towards the mines at the foot of the Cerro Rico mountain is the Mercado de Mineros, the miners' shopping center. Probably the only supermarket in the world where you can legally, even on the street, buy dynamite. The shelves are filled with cigarettes, cola, biscuits, ammonium nitrate, sticks of dynamite, fuses and coca leaves. Here is everything the miners need. The cane brandy is almost one hundred percent, it is intended to dampen the perception, protect the senses in the cramped, sometimes only 40 cm high labyrinth underground. They will not be rich, the miners. And not old.
