De regreso a Lima

PERU | Fri, 14 May 2010 | By jmeh | Views [567]

El viernes me recogieron a las 6 am, para irnos hacia Juliaca, donde queda el aeropuerto de la zona. Juliaca es una ciudad inmensa, más grande que Puno, pero de una pobreza mayor. Me dicen que existe mucho contrabando. Al transitar por las calles, ... Read more >

Lake Titicaca Part I

PERU | Tue, 7 Oct 2008 | By steph_dave | Views [805]

Can’t help but think that that name should come with a ‘boom boom’ at the end.   After we flew back to Cusco from Puerto Maldonado we got a bus straight (I say straight, we were delayed buy an hour because of some kind of carnival) to Puno.   It’s ... Read more >
