Buenas noches y saludos!
Today’s explorations began with a morning hike high above Copacabana. We then boarded our private boat and made a visit to the Isla de la Luna (Moon Island) and enjoyed a picnic lunch on the beach.
Upon arrival to the Isla del Sol (Sun Island) we met Lucas, a four month old orphan baby alpaca. Lucas turned out to be the star of the day and has now, with unanimous support from the team, been added as an honorary member.
Even after the excitement of meeting Lucas, our sunset hike to the highest point of the Isla del Sol was still a dramatic way to finish the day.
Tomorrow we are excited to make our transition to the mountains! We will have much less internet access so pictures will be less frequent but we will update you as we can.
Thanks for following along!
Saludos a todos!
Today we fought through traffic to leave the big city and begin our adventures in Bolivia’s countryside. We explored the ruins of Tiwanaku, a truly fascinating innovative pre-Incan civilization. Pepe filled us in on both what archeologists have been able to discover, all the legends, and a few extra entertaining stories of his own.
We then made our way to the shores of Lake Titicaca, saw some sunset colors over the lake, and enjoyed dinner… with a highlight of passion fruit cheesecake and tiramisu!
Today’s photos include a little cable car gem from yesterday, a Tiwanaku photo opp, and a glimpse of our “lakeglow” sunset view.
On behalf of the whole Bolivia team, thanks for following along!
The entire Bolivia team arrived this morning (with all their luggage I might add!!). We spent the day exploring the city of La Paz, beginning our acclimatization, and riding the cable car system; La Paz’s unique form of public transportation.
Here’s a photo of the sunrise over the city this morning and a couple of artistic group photos!
Next stop…the ruins of Tiwanaku and Copacabana.
