My Peruvian Adventure

A very busy day: we start off with a bike taxi ride down to the docks to our boat, then we visit the floating Uros Islands, followed by some kayaking on the lake. The lake is beautiful, of course, and the water is incredibly clear once you get away from Puno.

After kayaking, we were back on the boat and headed to Ticonata, which was one of my favorite places on the trip. The view of the sunset from the top of the hill on the island was magnificent, I spent a couple of hilarious hours playing cards with our guide Alfredo and the crew from the boat. After dinner our hosts performed some of their traditional dances for us and then we slept in very cozy huts.
