Puno

hmmmm, more like a visit to the floaters in Pooooooono!

overcast 15 °C

Not much time was spent here in Puno (Peru side of the lake). The town was horrible (hence pooooono!!) and within 1 hour of arriving in the town we headed off to the floating villages for the afternoon.

When we got to the islands we realised it was very touristy! The village people survive on selling products/crafts to tourists. The floating villages have all amenities required, primary and secondary schools, a mini-market, a phone booth and boats to cross to the other islands (no McDonalds sail through yet!!!!!)

We then sailed to the next island on a reed boat, which was surprisingly stable.

Ended the day with a great sunset.

That was it for Poooono and the next morning headed to Cusco!
