... soup ;) better!!! We were surprised to eat by ourselves but they told us they already ate. In the afternoon we went in the centre and visit a bit. We climbed up to the sanctuario de Pachamama. From there we had a view extraordinary on the lake. The blue from the lake and from the sky contrasting together, no clouds and the perfectly defined mountain away thanks to the sun.
