After the magical town of Cusco I moved on to Puno, starting point to explore the highest navigable lake in the world (navigation by large boats), Lake Titicaca (3812 m).
Day 16&17, Puno – Lake Titicaca
I arrived early morning (04:20h…oof!) in Puno and had wait some hours in the bus terminal before I could hop on to my next tour; a 2-day trip on Lake Titicaca visiting the floating Uros islands (made of reed!?) and a overnight homestay at a local family on the island of Amantani.
It was pretty amazing to see how the Uru people live on islands made of reed, although it was pretty commercial and felt as if they did a performance for ‘us tourists’ rather than giving an authentic peek into their lives.
The beautiful Amantani island, an incredible experience!
Despite my ‘no hablo espangol’ I was able to get a good idea of how the people live.
Sunset, oof!! (and yes, that is me )
‘parents’ for one night:
On the ferry back to Puno…SO cute!
