The island was stunning and we walked the entire length from North to South stopping to wander around some Incan ruins including the Sacred Stone where the Incan legend began. We also managed to have a skinny dip in the very refreshing (9 degrees) waters of Lake Titicaca just before a tour boat came around the corner and might have got more than they bargained for if they had been a couple of minutes earlier.
We had quite an exciting boat ride back as the wind whipped up as soon as left the island and the lake became really choppy. We had to come down from the roof because the boat was becoming unstable and waves were breaking onto the roof
As it was Nics last night we decided to blow the budget and stay in a really posh hotel on the hillside overlooking the lake….all of $20! I think I’m going to like Bolivia. It was a beautiful place with a gorgeous garden with hammocks and a hot tub. We bought a bottle of red and spent a couple of hours relaxing in the hot tub watching the sunset over the lake. Wow.
Our travels together will be coming to an end tomorrow which will be very sad and I will be back to travelling on my own again….no-one to watch my bag when I go to the loo!! Hehehe.
Next stop La Paz………
