    Lake Titicaca-A Conundrum

    A travel blog entry by donnajimtravels on Oct 08, 2012

    We could not decide if we should go to Lake Titicaca or not. We have heard very mixed reviews of it and having been there, I get it. It is a beautiful lake – the highest navigatible lake in the world. And they have created a tourist experience that is downright bizarre.

    ... for making the woman's clothes and vice versa. The woman also wears the number of skirts that matches her age (eg. I'd wear 25 if I lived there and got married now).

    ... or the duck was more relieved. Spent some time on the island before heading back on the boat for a nice cruise to Taquille. This is a much bigger island, with around 2,000 people living on it and more modernised than Uros. We walked round the island, stopping for a locals lunch (quinoa soup and trout) before heading back to the boat and the two hour ride to Puno. We went out to dinner on our last night in Peru with Dik and Juep, two Dutch boys we met that day on our tour staying at ...

    ... danced with the band, Terry said he has posted something but it is mucking up, will get copy from another traveller who videos also. (Love to embarrass myself!!) We stopped at a local market after our lunch and picked up a jumper for Terry, was rushed and thought it was a bargain but a typical machine knitted thing we could buy at home, oh well, only A20. We had another stop and our band ...
