  • How not to make stopover in bustling Puno for an excursion on Lake Titicaca, another symbol of the collective imagination. Source of high expectations, largely dashed on the island of Taquile for a journey of at least 30 minutes with severe headache and come to a nondescript square enjoy a trout in a family restaurant and feel that everything is built for tourists. The views over the Lake are charming nevertheless.
