HOW TO GET TO PUNO.

In Cusco, part of my journey was to go to Puno, so I left Cusco at 9:30 PM and I was arriving to Puno at 5:00 PM. Once at the terminal of Puno I walked to Lake Titicaca and I watched the most spectacular sunrises that I’ve ever seen, I felt calm and happy to have fulfilled part of my trip. While  I was resting on the pier of the lake thought about how far it was from my home. I saw a man doing meditation exercises by invoking the paccha mamma, I saw a fisherman on the lake at that time of dawn,that are the things that I will always carry in my mind.

I Returned to terminal and I hired an agency to do the tour on the lake and they took me to visit the Island of the Uros.  This Islands are made from cattails and they are floating on the lake.

You can find a community who explain how the Aymaras developed these islands and their way of life. You can collaborate with them buying crafts. You can also check your passport to indicate  that you were on  the Titicaca lake.

I Returned to Puno and  I took a bus that take me to Bolivia, I wanted to go to Copacabana so I travelled 3 hours to Bolivia since Puno. In the border we got to go to migration and checked our passports we continue the journey to Copacabana.

FINALLY IN COPACABANA.

We were the last to cross the border, I arrived to Copacabana at 7 pm in Bolivia. Peru has one hour in addition, the bus was full of tourists so they left us in the door of a hotel to check in,  I do not have an available room at that hotel and I had to walk a few blocks to check in at a new one.
In the morning I went to breakfast and look for a tour that takes me to the Isla del Sol; I took a boat that took us to the Isla del Sol, When you arrive you can take a walk along the beach to reach the top of the island and observe a beautiful landscape of the whole island, after a long walk You can see the ruins of the island.

When the boat took us to the southern part of the island, the Yumani’s community where I could climb the stairs of the Inca and watch the source of life.
Once I finished my tour in the Isla del Sol I sat on the boardwalk to rest, I was watching the scenery and the tranquility overlooking the island.

 

We returned by boat to Copacabana and I had to go get my backpack because my bus out to Puno and then I left to Cusco.  Finally I would visit Machu Picchu it’s another story that I have to tell.
