I am back in La Paz after two days in Copacabana. I was supposed to go to the jungle actually, but due to weather conditions, flight uncertainty and time constraint I decided to go visitLake Titicaca, the highest/largest/bluest navigable lake ever!! It is a beautiful place, the lake that is, Copacabana itself is a tourist ready small town with very little to offer and quite unpretty really. Tourist do flock here though as it is a gateway to Peru and visit to the Isla del Sol. On my first day I just walked around and trying to get a feel for the town. The place seems to be run by women, in their traditional attire, they are at the market, the do roadwork in funny uniforms with skirts, they run travel agencies, restaurants, food stalls, pretty much everything, the men, I don't know what they do, they seem to drive the buses but other than that you don't seems them around much. By the evening of the first day I met quote a few people so I had a lovely dinner in company of a large group of Argentinians, had the local delicacy (trout! Fran you'd love it!) and had a first taste of Argentinian mate. The next day I decided to go visit the Isla del Sol, unfortunately the morning weather was not on my side and on the very very veeery slow boat ride I did get quite drenched, but never mind. The sun was shining by the time I was on the island and I managed to walk around a bit. Overall the visit was ok, nothing special, but the lake it's just stunning. One of the best part of the small trip to Copacabana was the stunning lake view from my room, that allowed me in the evening to just sit on the bed, sip on coca mate and watch the sun go down, priceless. Oh yeah and the trout was amazing too! So tomorrow I am off to Oruro and then to Uyuni, from there I will start a 3 day 4x4 drive through salt flats, lagoons, lakes. I will write as soon as possible. ciao.
