Where I stayed
Crossed the border into our 6th country on our World tour heading for Copacabana number 2. The main reason for a stop off here was to have a boat trip on Lake Titicaca going to Isla del Sol. We had been told that we could spend an afternoon there as we were all feeling under the weather due to the altitude. We headed out onto the lake in the freezing cold and was told it would take an hour and a half each way to get to the island and we would have 40 minutes there so we were rather angry about the waste of a day. Hence the two photos of the group, one angry, one lying!!
That evening though we had then best dinner ever stuffed trout and peppered steak so smiles were back!!
Next morning headed for a tasty breakfast and booked ourselves on a bus to La Paz. The bus ride turned out to be rather interesting. We had to get of the bus to cross Lake Titicaca by boat. Our bus also had to cross the lake on a very old motorised barge boat which looked as if it could fall in at any point! It made the journey a bit more exciting though. The views as we were coming into La Paz were beautiful, there were huge snow capped mountains all around the city.
We reserved rooms on the best hostel in town for the first time on our trip thanks to Fi. The rooms are amazing, en suite, double bed with a DUVET!! (no sheets and heavy blankets) and the hostel has an awesome bar with brilliant food!
