My girlfriend and I were planning on visiting the statue and viewpoint on our afternoon in Oruro, but unfortunately found the cable car station completely closed and abandoned. On closer inspection, the sign on the door read that it only operates on Wednesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays. Why? It seems like a pretty vital piece of infrastructure, especially for visitors to this town where there is very little else to do.

We both had altitude sickness, so walking up was out of the question, and there was no WiFi anywhere to call a car as the local taxis were all really expensive to get up there. If you're planning on visiting Oruro, make sure it's on a Wednesday it seems. Rated two stars because at least it still looks nice overlooking the town, especially if you can see it from a rooftop.
