Peru - Puno & Lake Titicaca

20 °C

We crossed into Peru and our first stop was the dusty and shabby town of Puno...some nice buildings and from the lookout, a great view over the lake...it also offers trips out to the famous and extremely touristy floating reed islands on Lake Titicaca. After we recovered from the pushy and loud local salesmen flooding us in the bus terminal (a big change from the quiet Bolivians we had grown to love) we soon found ourselves on a boat trip out to the islands. It was well worth the trip, as we jumped over the squishy islands which felt like you may plunge through into the lake at any minute, met traditional inhabitants of the islands and got to enjoy some local (and slightly painful!) high pitch singing as we were farewelled on our floating reed boat!

After 5 months away we were both looking forward to some new company, so we welcomed Paul´s sister Debbie and friend Shelley with open arms as they joined us for the next few weeks of travel!
