Where I stayed
El Manzano

Tuesday, June 30, 2009

Were back on the impossibly slow tour boat going back to Puno from the lake.  I enjoyed being out on the lake but ts been hard not having had a proper handwashing with soap for two days.  I also havent seen a toilet that flushed itself; you have to wash it down with a bucket of water.  Hand sanitizer only goes so far and I want to reach civilization again.  First thing Ill do is take another hot shower at El Manzano.  Then Ill get more soles at an ATM.  We might hit up the local artisan market and try to take a bike taxi to the center of town. 

I think that travelling is teaching me some spiritual disciplines: patience, generosity, and endurance.  Not that I am practicing them well, but I am at least learning about them.  I am also feeling more fond for home and the people there.  Sometimes you have to get away to fully appreciate what you have left behind.
