Peru trip 2010! Machu Picchu, Lake Titicaca and more
Afterwards, we head back for the 3 hours motor to Puno. In town we check in to our hotel Q'Elqatani. Its a beautiful classic looking hotel with extremely comfortable beds. They bring up our baggage and cups of coca tea. I'm learning to love the tea - it does bring relief from the altitude sickness - which refuses to leave me alone. I try to sleep but its no use. I'm guessing Cusco will be a great relief at a lower elevation. This is why I guess they recommend acclimating in Cusco for a day or two before going to Lake Titicaca. Smart! I'll have to remember that next time!
