Sunday 4.7.2010 day 263 Buss to Copacabana in Bolivia We got up a 6am as we had to be at the bus station at 7am to get our bus. We got our coupon transferred to tickets and paid our taxes at another counter and got on what was supposed to be a 2 hour bus trip. It took a bit over 2 hours to get to the Bolivia boarder where there was some ceremony going on with lots of police, soldiers with sub machine and trumpets and officials. It took us about an hour to get out of Peru and into Bolivia. We then only had about another 20 minutes to Copacabana. Copacabana is a fantastic little town on the Lake Titicaca as we did not have a booking we had a walk around and found the best hotel right on the beach. It was $B100 ($16 Aus) per night for the two of us with ensuite and our own personal balcony with fantastic views. This is a very expensive room we could have got rooms for $2 US per person but they did not have windows or ensuite or the fantastic views we had. After checking in we found out
the info about the trips and then had lunch on the beach front as the local dish here is trout we had to have that. The Trout are farmed on Lake Titicaca and sold all around the world to expensive restaurants and here we are having then for $B18 ($3 Aus). Later we went for a walk to the markets and the Incan’s Lama Hats were very cheap so we got two for $B30 ($5Aus). We also got Singani (grape sprits) the local Bolivian drink. We then went back to our room to have the Singani while watching the sun go down over Isle del sol.
