Our hotel is built on a peninsula with great views of the lake from front and back. Lake Titicaca is on the border of Peru and Bolivia. It's average depth is over 100m and its surface area is over 8,000 sq km. There are over 20 lakes at a higher altitude, but Titicaca's claim is to be the highest commercially navigable lake. A 2,200t ship owned by PeruRail is currently used for tourism.

Sadly Robyn was still feeling poorly this morning, and when she discovered she'd left her small jewellery bag behind (on the train?) she decided to forgo the Lake tour and spend some quiet time and see if she could track down her bag through contacting our tour coordinator.
So I left at 7am to catch a 44 pax "speedboat" to cruise the lake and visit the floating Uros Islands and Taquile Island. The tour commentary was in Spanish and in English, not my preference, but it was comprehensive.
No luck finding the jewellery, bummer. Breaking news, not lost, just misplaced!!
