39-Trip to Puno, Lago Ticaca

Another place to visit was Lago Titicaca with the island of Uros. My father spend some time here and in his memoirs wrote he treid to sail with their rafts/boats against the wind. I guess that must have been a unique sight to see, unfortunately I will never know the details of those days.

Therefore it was an important destination to visit with my family. Very eductional for the children and also for us to see how the cultures try to adapt ans still try to preserve their traditions.

We had a fabulous drive with beautiful scenery along the elevated valley and crossing a high ‘ La Raya Pass’, with nd elevations of 4340 meters  (14238 feet).  Amazingly you never think you are that high.
