Lake Titicaca

After a short bus trip from La Paz we arrived in Copacabana and Lake Titicaca. Copacabana staddles the Bolivian/Peruvian border and is the departure point for trips to Isla Del Sol. We stayed over on Isla Del Sol for one night, hiking the length of the island. Copacabana also has great Trout and other local fish. I made the most of it and had Trout nearly everyday.

Festive Boats on the shores of Lake Titicaca.

Llamas on Isla Del Sol taking in the view. On the island there are no cars, Donkey and Llama are the only means of transport.

Attempting to set up some self-timer photos after we reached the peak of Isla Del Sol.

During our hike we went off the trail and accidentally stumbled onto some farm land.

A typical and unhealthy Bolivian breakfast of Api (a hot purple corn drink with cinnamon and spices) and a Bunelos (greasy doughnuts).

After leaving Titicaca we went down to Arequipa, home of two of the worlds deepest canyons. I hiked neither. I was still pretty spent from hiking Potosi so we relaxed.

4 for 12sole Cuba Libres is a recipe for mayhem.

We headed to the Karaoke bar after. We almost got into two fights and had an amazing time.
