    ... children had already flown the nest and as we found out later that day, the children really made the stay! The father of the house was named Nicolas and he walked us from the port to his simple house up the hill. After settling in to our room (we nabbed the double bed leaving the other couple with the singles!) and marvelling at the view from the house, it was time for lunch.

    Border crossings are always interesting and often bring out the best in all the players involved along the way. Border officials, touts and sales folks, money changers and roadside vendors all trying to make a few extra coins during their long days. Our relatively quick transition from Bolivia to Peru simply involves jumping out of the bus, getting an immigration exit stamp, walking a hundred feet across the border into Peru, getting a Peruvian entry stamp and jumping back on the ...

    ... of standing of a bed of reeds was quite strange, spongey yet surprising supportive! It was cool to start, they told us about the people and how the islands are made. They cut out reed roots which come out in big floating blocks, all strung together with sticks and rope, then they cover it with reeds. After this however it was just a sale pitch trying to sell crafted goods and boat rides, we also went to another bigger island where they also had a restaurant! Fair ...
