Ce matin départ 6h50 direction le lac Titicaca. Au programme visite des Uros et de l'île Taquile.

Les Uros sont des îles flottantes (attention, blague de David: "mais sans crème anglaise"), construites avec des roseaux, la technique est assez impressionnante.
Ensuite nous avons repris le bateau pour rejoindre Taquile où une petite …

Un long trajet pour un dépaysement total

A travel blog entry by david-et-emilie


Comme prévu, le réveil matinal a été trèèès difficile, après une nuit de 3h. Du coup les 2 vols ont surtout été passés à dormir (enfin surtout pour Emilie).

    Stayed here with a group tour and the staff was very accommodating as we had leave our big bags and allowed us to do so in the room. When we returned only a few of us had to change rooms. Beds are very comfy and warm, bathrooms clean and lots of hot water.
