A Day in Puno

Puno is a much maligned small town at a high altitude so we ate lightly, went easy on the alcohol, forgot about our morning jog and generally took it easy. Fortunately, most things are near each other so we could see everything in a short time and get out quickly.

Planning to see Lake Titicaca from the Bolivian side, we were caught by surprise when The State Department issued a travel warning against travel to Bolivia. We substituted Puno to be able to see Lake Titicaca from the Peruvian side. We're glad we did.

"Poor old put-down Puno "

Puno, on the edge of vast Lake Titicaca certainly receives more negative comments than most places and although it's certainly not the most attractive spot in the world it's not really that bad! It is a convenient starting point to the various islands on the lake or to continue on to Bolivia, Cusco or Arequipa. Use it as a rest stop!
