This entry should probably have a couple pins with it since I stopped at a number of places. Hey! I finally got out of Cusco isn't that amazing. I was there for such a long time, I am glad I got away. I took off early one Sunday morning and headed for the city of Puno. The main attraction for this place was the fact it sits on the shores of Lake Titicaca.

Puno was pretty interesting because I chose to stay somewhere very 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.
