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.

Le changement est total par rapport au Chili, qu' …

About 206 mountainous miles separate Cuzco from Puno, and our Wi-Fi enabled, toilet-provided tour bus traveled across paved roads, toll roads, and dirt roads, over 14,000 foot passes, and through some of the most splendid views of the spine of the Andes Mountains in South America.

    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.
