We get onto our bus to discover that our guide Josh will not be joining us
We are all relieved to get onto our plane ok. Our flight will touch down once and then onto Juliaca. Landing is Juliaca is an experience. It was a good thing I was so involved in my book. We landed with such a thump that my book went flying out my my hands and there was a collective gasp from our group. We were all so happy to get getting off the plane. It was a very small airport but we were at very high altitude. We had no sooner gotten into the terminal when some of the group started to feel the effects of the altitude. As soon as we arrived in our hotel in Puno our new quide started to feed us coca tea to settle our stomachs.
Once we settled into our rooms we headed out for lunch at a locl rstaurant. Most had pizza which looked to be good. Al and I took the guides advise to eat lightly and just had soup. It was Nicolle's birthday so we did get birthday cake for dessert.
