Lake Titicaca, the favorite place name of all middle school boys, was the perfect location to finish our Peru holiday. My son and I spent a glorious sunny day on the lake, visiting a Uros reed island, exploring Taquille Island, and learning about the history and culture from our Amantani Isle guide.
But first, we had to get there. We spent 10 hours on a large tour bus transiting from Cusco to Puro. This was our first experience on a large but as all our previous tours were semi-private and included no more than six other people. While not my preferred mode of travel, it did get up from point A to B with interesting stops and sites along the way.

My moment of pure bliss
This is the final image in my Peru series. We sat for lunch and I ordered a Cusquena (Peruvian beer). Local bread was served in a wooden bowl, as I sat with my son overlooking Lake Titicaca to the snow-capped mountains of Bolivia in the distance. What a beautiful world upon which we live.(All pictures were taken with a Fujifilm X70)
