Re-write :-(

This post was already written…and I managed to delete the draft, with much chagrin. So, bare bones this time! Just to share the photos really.

Jumped on an early morning bus from Arequipa that was heading towards Puno. People had said not to bother staying here, but in the end I’m glad I did. The following afternoon I visited Sillustani, some funerary towers that originally contained chullpas (mummies) from the Aymara civilisation. The lake is not Titikaka! (Spelled all different ways around here; I’m going with the local spelling, not the international one.)

On the way back to Puno after the tour, I had the opportunity to stop at a local family home and try the age-old tradition of edible clay, along with some other local food. It doesn’t taste of much to be honest, just provides some moisture.

The next morning I was looking forward to my last few hours in Peru, heading round the shores of the magnificent Lake Titikaka to cross the border into Bolivia, to stay in the highly recommended but not-the-famous-one Copacabana.

  2. Puno is awesome! Who told you not to stay there? The funny think is that i think we have the exact some picture of those little clay bulls on top of the houses.
