Lake Titicaca is the highest navigable lake in the world, with a surface elevation of 3,812 meters (12,507 feet). By volume of water, it is the largest lake in South America.


We stopped in Puno (Perú) for the night.

Last Peruvian meal: Alpaca meat, and cuy (guinea pig). Tasted good!

Copacabana is the Bolivian lake town we stayed in.

There was some kind of celebration going on. Many of the local vehicles were decorated like this.

We visited the "Isla del Sol", the biggest island in Lake Titacaca.

Grilled trout. Fantastic!

Coca leaves are abundant in these high altitude regions (and legal).

Our bus takes a ferry across the water, to get to La Paz!
