Today was a travelling day. Nothing too exciting. We made our way from the Colca Canyon to Puno.

I was intrigued with how many stray dogs I saw in the middle of nowhere though. We would be in an absolute desolate place and there would be a dog on the side of the road. Nothing in sight but grasslands and a dog. It was easy to feel sorry for these dogs. They were mangey and had a lost look in their eyes.

We crossed a lot of farm land today. As you looked out, you didnīt just see cows grazing; you also saw one or two Peruvians sitting amongst them... just watching. Dressed in their traditional outfits, these people would keep watch over the herds all day long. I was bored just thinking about how bored they must be. With no shade and absolutely nothing around, it wouldnīt take long before Iīd get up and abandon the herd.

Arrived in Puno and was afforded a gorgeous view of Lake Titicaca with the surprisingly sprawling city of Puno in the foreground.

Lastly on the agenda tonight, I believe itīs guinea pig time!
