Dnes bylo nase posledni rano v Peru a jako obvykle jsme zase vstavali brzy, abychom stihli bus v 7.30. Cekala nas cesta pres hranicni prechod do Bolivie a tedy spousta front, formali, uredniku a razitek...odevzdavani formularu a vyplnovani jinych, ale zvladli jsme to celkem rychle a tak jsme odjizdeli od hranic s 30 dennim vizem. Bolivie se prilis nelisi od Peru, hodne spiny, nic moc jidlo, horsi cesty. Za to jsme se ocitli ve vyssich nadmorskych vyskach. Nasi cilovou stanici byla Copacabana, maly pristav u jezera Titicaca na bolivijske casti jezera. Dalsi zmenou byl posun hodin o 1 hodinu dopredu. Vyrazili jsme do mesta omrknout zdejsi katedralu, ktera je jmenovana v knizce 1000 budov k videni pred tim nez zemrete a v Boliviii proslavena zajimavym zvykem, kdy se pred ni krti auta pro stesti a je to docela show, kdy se nesetri sampanskym a kvetinami. Taky jsme si koupili listek na lod na Isla del sol- Ostrov slunce, kam se chystame zitra. Nakoupili jsme si nejake jidlo na zitra asi na petkrat, protoze tady neni zadny supermarket nebo bankomat. Taky jsme si pronajali kanoi a projeli jsme se po jezere.

Today was our last morning in Peru and as usual we had to wake up soon to catch bus at 7.30. Ahead of us was a journey to and through the borders to get to Bolivia meaning lots of formalities, queues, clerks and stamps...fill up the form and handing over , but we managed it quickly and we left with 30days visa. Bolivia is not very different from Peru, quite dirty, poor hygiene, worse roads. We just live in higher altitude. Our stop was Copacobana, small port by lake Titicaca, a bolivian part. Another change was that we had to adjust our watch - 1 hour more. We went to see the town, mainly its catedral that is named in the book 1000 building u have to see before u die a in Bol. famous as a place where the cars are christened for good luck when they do use lots of champagne and flowers. We also bought tickets on Isla del sol- Island of sun where we go tomorrow. We did buy some food for tomorrow. We rented a canoe and had a nice ride on lake.
