After spending enough time in the concrete jungle of La Paz we headed north west for Lake Titicaca, and the small town of Copacabana perched on it's shores.
Here we would spend 2 nights before visiting Isla del Sol for 2 nights and then heading onwards to Peru.
We arrived to Copacabana on Wednesday around lunch time. We found our hostel, Hostel Las Brisas and dropped our things before setting off for lunch.
We got the standard (and cheap) almuerzo. Almuerzo in Bolivia consists of a starter soup (often vegetables and quinoa), a main dish with meat of your choosing accompanied by rice, potato fries and salad or vegetables, followed by the postre (dessert) generally a pudding or yoghurt with fruit. Yum.
As well as eating delicious, cheap lunches in Copacabana we explored the town and climbed/walked/crawled to two amazing lookouts, boasting views over the entire town and far out over the lake.
The 2 different viewpoints are Horca del Inca and Cerro Calvario. Whilst we have been acclimatising to altitude again (after Rurrenabaque) for nearly a week now, these hills still made us all feel like 90somethings with chronic emphysema. However, all the huffing and puffing was certainly worth it for the jaw dropping view of the lake.
Both are definitely worth a look at when in Copa.
Tomorrow we're off to Isla del Sol, it's meant to be beautiful... and cold at night. Very cold.
