Flag of Bolivia  ,
Tuesday, August 24, 2010

The border crossing into Bolivia was simple and hassle-free despite us worrying about 'fake' dollars being confiscated. Copacabana was our first stop and is a very very small and undeveloped village, especially compared to what we thought it would be like seeing as it is most people's first or last stop in Bolivia. Despite rumours of the bubonic plague, wildfires and political protests there seem to be surprisingly many tourists travelling around Bolivia. There was not a lot to do in the town at all and we decided to make use of the 'splurge' recommendation in the Lonely Planet and stay in a cute little hotel on the hill for a whopping $18! We had a garlic trout by the lake for lunch; relaxed in the hammocks for the afternoon and took a stroll up one of the hills outside town to nearly 4000m to watch a very pretty sunset. Lake Titicaca is far more impressive from this side than it was from Puno with much cleaner and brilliant blue water.
