Buses, bus stations, and trout.

Well, it looks like I made the right decision on the bus. The $90 Boliviano bus, and the $60 Boliviano bus, were actually the same bus. The only difference I could see is that as a 'bus normal' rider I had to check my bag at the desk, as opposed to just giving my bag to the porter.
I had a window seat, which was good, because they certainly had found the heat controls on this bus. I woke up from a nap dripping in sweat, and was able to crack the window just enough to get things back to normal. Only one stop for food and bathroom break at about 12:30am, and we pulled into the La Paz bus terminal at about 6:45am.
So after each freshening up from the road we headed into town to get some food. Francious was set on getting some of Copacabana's famous lake trout from Lake Titicaca, and I wasn't going to argue. We found a nice place that had about 10 different varieties and grabbed some drinks and ordered.
The meal was fabulous, and Francious even ordered a second, differently prepared plate of trout. He had to concentrate on the fish and ignore most of the sides, but he finished the entire thing. I was full after the first, but it was delicious.
After the restaurant, we got it into our heads to find a couple of bottles of Bolivian wine.
But, lo and behold, we found about four different brands and 10 different varieties of wine from Bolivia. Francious bought a bottle of white, and I bought a white and a red. Francious offered to split his bottle, but I declined and felt bad about it. I was way to tired and needed to sleep.
After some internet updtaing at the slowest internet access yet (hence no pics until Cuzco), I hit the rack planning on going to Isla Del Sol in Lake Titicaca tomorrow.
