Puno was pretty interesting because I chose to stay somewhere very cheap..like really cheap. I payed $3 for my accomidation the first night. It was really basic, a lightbulb hanging by the cord in the middle, a small bed, tiny desk and chair. I should also mention this place didnt have hot water. What can you expect got $3.
Early the next morning I got up had some breakfast and headed to the docks, to pick up some sailors of course. I ended up boarding a boat and headed towards the floating islands of Uros. These islands are made of stacked piles of reeds. It was pretty neat, the whole islands would rock when a boat passed.
After the floating islands we headed to Amantani where I was to spend the night. It was a 3 hour boat trip away! Pretty damn far if you ask me. The island itself was really pretty, after lunch I went to watch part of a school festival, all the kids were dressed up in different costumes and each class would do their own dance. After a while of that I ended up going for a hike to the top of the island. I wandered around and took some pics etc. The next morning we were off to the island of Taquile for some craft shopping and food. After the 2.5 hour ride back I raced to the bus stop and got out of Puno and headed to Arequipa.
