|Arrival into Puno was warming after our last few days in Copacabana.
Puno is only across the water from Bolivia as it sits on the banks of Lake Titicaca, which provides a natural separation between Peru and Bolivia.
Lake Titicaca, the world's highest navigable lake is the main attraction that draws people to this part of Peru. The amazing deep blue lake, 195 km in length with an average width of 50 km, is the largest lake in South America and the largest in the world above 2,000 m.
We didn't visit Lake Titicaca whilst in Puno, we just used the town as a stop over on our way to Cusco where we were meeting Jim in a couple of days. Jim was coming out from England for a holiday in Peru. We decided to save the delights of island hopping for when Jim would be with us.
