The following day we travelled across the border into Peru to Puno. After a 4 hour journey it was amazing that we were still by the shores of the lake. From Puno we took an afternoon boat to the famous floating islands of Uros. The inhabited islands were initially created by an indigenous community to avoid oppressors and to maintain their freedom
Our day in Puno was a busy one as we managed to squeeze in a visit to the interesting coca museum (where a bit of dressing up in traditional costume was involved), a chocolate cake, a walk around the crazy streets where people were parading in support of the candidates they liked for the upcoming election, a lovely dinner and then we got another night bus direct to Cusco. At the bus station we bumped into the Danish couple again by coincidence- they were getting the same bus!
