Highest lake in the world

Lake Titicaca

sunny 28 °C

After quite an interesting trip, involving the bus and us being ferried across the lake separately, we arrived at Copacabana on Lake Titicaca.

Copa itself wasn't anything flash but we spent a nice day checking out the town and walking up to the lookout over the lake. It really is beautiful, you feel like you're on top of the world here. It's an amazing feeling. The next day we headed out to Isla Del Sol, which had particular religious significance for the Incas. The ruins were a little disappointing but the island itself was beautiful.

We did the circuit around the island in an afternoon and had some spectacular views of the lake. It was a beautiful, peaceful day, and we stayed in a gorgeous place which looked out over the lake. If we'd been up early enough we could have watched the sunrise over the lake. Laziness won the day however, and we just enjoyed our view a more civilised hour. The experience was a little marred by the hotel owner doing the old switercheroo. After negotiating the price when we got off the boat, he told us (after a pretty gruelling hike up the top of the hill) that the price was per person. He quite accurately predicted we would not want to go all the way back down and have to hike up again. Touche Mr hotel man, this round to you.
