Parrots on the railing (DarAnne Dunning)
This morning I was able to have a bit of a sleep-in and a nice breakfast at the hotel, before Boris met me again to take me to the airport for my flight to Juliaca. My destination was Lake Titicaca, the highest navigable lake in the world at 12,000ft. I arrived at the airport in the early afternoon, and local guide Manuel met me at the airport. There was also a spirited little band playing Andean wood instruments to greet me in lively, Peruvian fashion. I was in Peru in the middle of the rainy season, so it had been spitting rain as the plane flew in, but as the plane landed, the sun came out, and I was greeted by a beautiful rainbow. I drove with Manuel about a half an hour to the town of Puno, which is on Lake Titicaca.
