Titicaca is at 3,800 meters of altitude.
Supposedly it is the highest navigable lake in the world.
I would say the most impressive thing about it is the size and the altitude.
The light and the sun are very strong up there, so the colors are beautiful.
Like any tourist destination, there is a myriad of agencies competing to get your money, not necessarily to give you the best tour. If your guide does not talk and the engine breaks on the way back, you have a hint...
I only spent an afternoon there, so maybe I should have given it more time, but with so many places to see I had to speed up
Key Titicaca is the result of my imagination, which is traveling with me. Key refers to the lake because it connects Bolivia to Peru and vice versa. And then because in italian it sounds very much like a slang saying that goes "who gives a damn about you"?
Ps then I decided to add mucha Titicaca, which means a lot of Titicaca.
Caca, once again sounds like the italian word for crap (the kind you would deposit in the bank of the loo...).
When you descend from high altitude places to the ones closer to the sea level your stomach adapts once again...meaning you start going to the loo again, regularly and happily, so the result is mucha Titicaca compared to what you depoist in the bank of the loo at high altitude.
