Well that´s it for Bolivia, and fortunately we´ve got a full complement of keys on the keyboard now that we´ve reached the Peru border !!! Maybe they don´t need question marks, apostrophes and brackets in Bolivia!!!!! What they do need however is a couple of good mechanics. Since Uyuni we´ve been on two more buses and both of them have broken down too, one after about two minutes on the way out of Uyuni and the other this morning as we were leaving Copa !!!! Anyone looking for a money maker in Bolivia need only start a tyre company and the millions will soon start rolling in !!!!

So Copacabana hey......yeah nice place, the lake is awesome and the drive from Le Paz incredible as you go halfway around Lake Tikicaca with awesome views the whole way before crossing the lake on a barge!!!!!!! The Cathedral in the town is also pretty cool unfortunately the shops and stallholders seem to be on the look out to rip you off at every oportunity, it´s a shame because when money isn´t involved they seem nice, oh well money changes everything i suppose !!!!!! We stayed at Emperador in the town because of the L.

P describes as upbeat and colorful with a delightful senora who loves travellers.  Well  she wasn´t there on our first day ( as we wouldn´t have stayed ) and we spoke to her daughter who was nice enough without going out of her way!!! The kitchen had run out of gas but she let us use this filthy cupboard under the stairs to cook some pasta so that was ok. After the trip down from Uyuni to La Paz and then to here we really didnt care and just wanted to look round town, have dinner and go to bed. Well next day after we had had to make a quick run back to La Paz ( no ATM´s here so a round trip of 7 hours...what fools !!!!!! should have remembered all the P´s..... Perfect Planning Prevents Piss Poor Performance !!!! ) the old traveller loving senora makes an appearance.
guinea pig anyone????????
....what a dragon, she was hideous and the only way that I can think that she loves travellers is in a pot with an onion, garlic and a carrot or two !!!!!!!!!!!!! She was breathing fire at us for using her perswonal cupboard for cooking even though her daughter had okéd it....honestly what an old hag , don´t bother with the place, it´s cheap enough but Copacabana is just over flowing with places to stay .

It´s a really picturesque place to visit and the Isle della sol has some amazing Inca bits and pieces, we didn´t actually go but on the hill overlooking the town are also some pretty cool Inca remains...oh and apparently this is where the stargate to an alternative universe opens up, so if you´re a bit miffed off with life and fancy popping over to an alternative universe, make you´re way down here !!!!!

We´re now in Puno in Peru and awaiting a bus to Pisco, could be along wait however as the road is blocked and at the moment nothing´s leaving the terminal, ( a complete oposite situation to my bottom by the way but that´s another story POOP POOP !!! ) , fingers crossed though we´ll be on our way soon.

SHIT the star gate's opening!!!!!
