We arrived yesterday at the city of Potosí, Bolivia. Potosí sits at an altitude of 4090 meters above sea level making it the highest city in the world.
Today the streets filled up for the Miners Carnival. Crowds of people throw water balloons, spray water guns and empty cans of shaving cream at each other whilst the miners play music and performers dance, all dressed in bright colors. Being a complete tourist, I noticed I made a fantastic target. After a three slick side-step maneuvers, I embarrassingly failed to dodge a fourth ballon. It hit me straight in the eye. At least the crowd found it funny.
