Puno, Lake Titicaca & the Floating IslandsR

... people went swimming before we boarded the boat for our journey back to Puno. We arrived back in Puno about 6ish and it was time to jump on the bus and head back to the hotel to shower and get ready for our included dinner. Soon enough dinner was over, and I headed back to our hotel to sleep (some people went out to party) as tomorrow is another long bus day as we head off to Cusco… gateway to the Sacred Valley and Machu ...

Our last stop was to view ABC: this one contained paintings that straddled the Inca and Spanish cultures. The Spanish priests were prepared to blend ideas so they could attract the Incas to their beliefs. Lockie became a proper dopey tourist today buying himself a Machu Pichu hat. Pete has been mistaken for Professor ...

On the road

The bus from Cusco to Puno (Lake Titicaca) took 11 hours - but wow! what a way to travel - it was a smorgasbord of sights. I had a front row seat and I spent the entire time taking pictures.

... a packet of crisps from the shelf as soon as Kes said he was hungry. Marco even said Kes could be the godfather to his unborn child and that he'd be called Lewin Victoriano! What a privilege! On a serious note though, they were very generous and I don't doubt that we'd be welcome if we ever end up returning to Puno. Despite missing out on the floating islands, we made plans to visit the Isla del Sol on the Bolivian side of the lake. So across the border we ...

Homestay at Lake Titicaca

... for spectators. It was really difficult playing as it was at high altitude and we all tired very quickly. Afterwards we went home with our family and had dinner before the fiesta that evening. We were taken to the outhouse where we would be eating round the cooking stove on a small wooden bench. Very strange to see our mummy cooking our food with a fire made by dry plants and cooked on a ceramic pots. The food was edible but the main again was a not very ...

    Small hostel that had a clean room and hot water, but most of the staff was unfriendly and unhelpful in terms of information about how to do things around the lake, etc. Small, uncomfortable bed
