Puno, Peru, November 24, 2017
I had a bad night - I ended up having to take 4 Immodium tablets and luckily was fine this morning. I slept most of the 8 hour drive to Puno, something I don't like to do but I couldn't help it.
Along the way-
We stopped at another roadside market; they're all the same selling fake alpaca toques, mitts and scarves-
More mountain views-
We stopped for lunch at a restaurant/truck stop sort of place. I had alpaca tenderloin in a sandwich. It was a little tough: I hate when it balls up in your mouth. It tasted a little wild and a little like liver, so obviously not my favorite. I didn't have coffee but was surprised coati and civeta beans were even available. An espresso or Americano of civeta costs $39.26!
The mountains are getting smaller and the valleys wider as we head south towards Bolivia. There are more cattle grazing-
Lake Titicaca is the highest navigable body of water in the world at 3832 meters-
The town of Puno is kind of dumpy but it has a nice walking street filled with restaurants, shops and bars-
