We made it to Puno after about a 5 hour bus ride from Arequipa. The drive took us through the altiplano which was interesting to see. We really like the town of Puno, it is a little more low key and less touristy they the other places we have been so far.
We ate at another really good restaurant, Alexa had trout from Lake Titicaca and Jason had alpaca in a peppery sauce, both very good. We bought Alpaca sweaters from a lady who knit then by hand (or at least that is what she told us). Both of us really wanted to get a sweater while we were in Peru and it was exciting to go out and shop and bargain for them. We also went to the Islas Flotantes which are the islands made of reeds that the Uros people have lived on for hundreds of years. It was interesting to see the islands and nice to see a little of Lake Titicaca, but it was a big tourist trap. It is just a quick stop for us in Puno but we may try and go to one of the more remote islands if we come back through Puno.
Tomorrow we head off to Cuzco. We splurged and are taking the tourist bus there, which stops at ruins along the way.
