Oct 14, 2004 - Lake Titicaca, Bolivia and Peru

We caught a bus from La Paz to Copacabana, which is a lovely town on the South of Lake Titicaca. The lake is famous because it is the highest(3820m)navigable lake in the world and really quite beautiful. We did a 12 mile trek along the cliffs with spectacular views overlooking the lake. The guide book said that we could jump on a fisherman´s boat back. It turns out not to be the case as there was nothing at the destination town. After 4 hours of hard walking and no water left, the last thing we wanted to do was walk back. With luck on our...

Jun 21, 2004 - Bolivia and Copacabana beach

We got the bus the next day, some of us with hangovers, others not. This was to be our first overland border crossing in South America. It was straight forward. Stamp out of Peru, change some money into the new currency, stamp into Bolivia. No bribes required. Copacabana on the other hand requires you to pay an "entry tax" to get into the town. The town gave it´s name to the famous beach in Rio de Janeiro and was a really pleasant and sunny place to stay for a couple of days. Copacabana is also on Lake Titicaca, the opposite side from...

Jul 30, 2003 - The Big Puddle

After a final check to make sure Percy's ancient dental treatments had worked, we headed straight to the bus station and leapt, with far too much excitement, onto a bus to Puno, which is the jumping off point for exploring Lake Titicaca. It was good to be on the move again and, despite the rain and really annoying French man who kept leaning right over Paul's seat with his video camera to capture memorable celluloid moments of rocks, it was a pleasant enough journey. It was late when we got to Puno and we let a tiny man with a dodgy leg...
