Copacabana was pretty unexciting for me. I spent the night on a bus to get here so I could sit on the shore of Lake Titicaca, which I did for a few hours. With not much else to do, I hopped on a bus to La Paz (buses are super cheap here in Bolivia, a 3.5 hour ride for $2).
I've done lots of travelling in the past (I think I'm up to about 57 countries). This blog was started in 2007 shortly before my Peru/Bolivia/Chile trip, but I'll eventually update it with my previous trips at some point (one of these days when I actually get around to scanning the photos).
This blog is both a journal for myself (and my wife and kids for our family trips) and a tool to share our photos/experiences with family and friends. ... full info
our bus on a small ferryThe best part of Copacabana was leaving. The road to La Paz must cross this small portion of the lake, so our bus went on this small ferry (barely large enough to hold it) while most of the passengers crossed in a motor boat.
bus transferon the way to Copacabana, we had to change buses (from the large comfortable one to the small collectivo). We then spent about an hour waiting until the border crossing between Peru and Bolivia opened.
a flat tireThe passengers wait while the driver changes a flat en route to La Paz. This must happen often as the locals just hopped off the bus and waited on the grass until we were ready to go again (surprisingly only about 10 minutes later).
