December 1, 2012 - From Puno, the road to Bolivia runs alongside lake Titicaca. It was a tranquil ride and after a few hours we arrived at the most lackadaisical border crossing so far on our trip. No hassle, just a few quick stamps to get us out of Peru. Maybe all of ten minutes.
The Bolivian side was just as relaxed. We had to wait for about twenty minutes before the customs officer came back from lunch. We sat in the shade and had out typical on-road lunch, a diet Coke and a bag of chips. A few kilometers further, we arrived in Copacabana, a dusty fishing town with a near-empty tourist infrastructure. It was a sleepy place and a good stop for a day.
The markets and surroundings made for good places to shoot some of the locals.
Aside from a day's rest and Jan changing his oil, not much happened. We connected with our Australian buddies again for dinner and a walk around town.
The next stop is La Paz, the highest capital in the world.
