    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.

    On the shore of Lake Titicaca

    Puno is a city in southeastern Peru, located on the shore of Lake Titicaca. There is less than 3km of flat land between the shores and the foothills, which has caused the growing city to continue to expand upwards onto the hillsides. Similar to La Paz, it is the poorer community that live upon the steep hills. The locals make a living raising …

    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 …

    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).

    Arrivés à l'aéroport de Juliaca, il nous restait une heure de route pour rejoindre Puno où nous logeons, au bord du lac Titicaca.
    Le changement est total par rapport au Chili, qu' …

    Island Hopping on Lake Titicaca

    ... this party. We all looked hilarious in our outfits and had a great time. A traditional music group played pan flutes, guitar and sang while we all danced in circle groups with our mamasitas and their families. It was exhausting at this altitude – I sat down for a good part of it. I chatted to a lovely Australian guy I had seen (and heard) earlier up at the mountain – he was travelling South America for seven months. We had a great night which ...

    ... to take us from the bus stop to our hostels. The Peru Hop employee spoke to the taxi driver to let him know where to take us. The taxi didn't look like it would make the journey, but soon we were on our street. The taxi driver just stopped and said here we are. Sorry we aren't staying in a four star hotel. He moved up to the next four star hotel. Nope, not us. I was getting frustrated again, but I wasn't getting out until he took us to the right place. I showed him ...
