Lake Titicaca was my last stop in Peru, going form Puno to visit the floating villages. The amazing lake straddles both Peru and Bolivia and is 230 km long! 

We visited villages an hour into the lake that are entirely made of reeds! Many indigenous people live on the floating vilages. they fish here make textiles and even eat the reeds. We were given demonstrations of they way they live and taken on a reed booat to other villages and met the people who were very warm people.. but the place was freezing!

I then went on 2 hours to see a single island where a differnt sort of village people live. They where different colours and headwear to indicate what age they are and if they are married or single.
I went to the Bolivia side to copocobana with Katie and Hannah that i met just for 1 night. we got drunk and they had to climb a fence into their hostel only to realise we just had to open it LOL.. onto Bolivia!
