Puno and Lake Titicaca

We had a great meal last night in Arequipa and a few Pisco Sours, and woke up early this morning to catch a bus to Puno - which is a city by lake Titicaca. Joe left Martin and me for the U.S., and we arrived at the crazy bus terminal around 7:30am. The bus ride was interesting and included...

Altitude Sickness=Change of Plans

Our adventure just keeps getting more and more exciting. Saturday night, Amy, Melisa, and I took a night bus to Puno, the hub of activity for Lake Titicaca. Lake Titicaca is the highest navigable mountainous lake in the world, as well as the largest lake in South America...it is over 170 km in...

Lake Titicaca

We arrived in Puno in the morning and were able to go directly on a tour to Lake Titicaca. Lake Titicaca is the world highest navigable lake and according to legend, this lake gave birth to the Inca civilization. Thus it is regarded as a very sacred place. Soon, after the minibus ride...

En el lago mas alto del mundo

Otra vez huelga y otra vez a dar vueltas. El trayecto de Cuzco a Puno es de una duracion de 6 horas aproximadamente. Yo he tardado 13. Pero he llegado. He tenido que tomar 5 autobuses diferentes: de Cuzco a Sicuani, de Sicuani a Espinar, de Espinar a Imata, de Imata a Juliaca, y de Juliaca a...

The Last of Peru

The day after I got back from the Inca trail, I started lessons at a Spanish school in Cusco. The school was pretty cool, with a roof terrace where students could chat to each other (if you managed to catch the sunny part of the day, usually in the morning). I had two weeks of one on one...

Not Puno Day

The hostel in Puno was really quite nice. It was organised into little apartments and our room was part of a two bedroom apartment, sharing a bathroom, kitchen, and TV room with one other couple. At first the manager seemed very keen to please and very helpful, but we soon realised he was just a...

South America plan - latest

Updated in Puno. Joanne has given up waiting for her work to let her know if she has a job, so we are now waiting for BA to get back to us with a quotation to re-reoute her itinerary. As always, the plan is still vague... for more up-to-date schedule information check this...

Still hangin´ in Puno

I talked with the airline who lets me know my bag is in now at the Juliaca airport. Me and Jason hop on the local bus into town, and then onto a sketchier bus to the airport. The one guy there tells us to come back six hours later, because the fellow with the key to the luggage area won´t be...

First day in Peru

I find myself just after midnight in the Lima airport. I just barely made the connection in Houston, but I have learned my backpack has not. Do I stick around another day or do I press on and let the airline take care of it? I opt to press on. I fly on to Juliaca, then take a cab to Puno...

The Great Laptop Heist

It will go down as one of the greatest crimes of the century. Somehow, in the downstairs compartment of a luxury night bus, in a locked room with only 9 seats, while my bag was between my legs and I don´t remember ever being asleep, somebody managed to rummage in and swipe my laptop. And...
