Copacabana, Bolivia.

After recovering from the Choro trek, we travelled to Copacabana on Lake Titicaca and Isla Del Sol, the birthplace of the Inca civilisation. We trekked for a couple of days on the island which has lots of Inca terracing that is still used for farming today. There are also a few Inca sites to visit and the area looks a bit like the Mediterranean coastline, except for the snow-covered Andes in the background.
We headed over the border into Peru next to the city of Puno which also lies on the shores of Lake Titicaca. From here we took a boat to see the floating reed islands of the Uros people. We also visited the Yavari, an iron hulled ship built in England in 1862 and transported to Puno in pieces. It has been restored to a seaworthy state again in recent years.
