Explosives

Heading South down towards Chile, we stopped at a mining town of Potosi. This bag contains a stick of nitro-glycerine, wrapped in ammonium nitrate. A detonator was shoved into the package and a fuse full of gunpowder acted as a timer. This was dropped on the ground a safe distance away while we waited for the explosion - even though we knew it was coming, it still scared the hell out of us!
