... on the western shore of Lake Titicaca. In many respects, Puno is similar to Juliaca and its economy also benefits from its closeness to the Bolivian border. One very noticeable feature of the city though is that virtually none of its houses appear to be finished. Jose explains that homeowners have to save the cash needed to build a house.

After hiking some more (the boys were beginning to complain about all of this walking), we began our descent to the shore once again where we boarded and made our way back.

Key is to get away from the tourist area but close to the business area. Second guideline - lots of locals eating there and the Third guideline is that the majority of the customers are wearing shoes. Well we found the spot 5 soles for the set menu ($2) so I was given a ticket with a #1 on it - ...
