Our first order of business, after dumping our stuff off at our hotel, was finding a way to get to our flight in Juliaca in two days time. The airport in Juliaca is located about 45 minutes from Puno and we had to be on that flight since it was taking us back to Lima where we would connect with our flight to Seattle. After hitting up the nice buses like Cruz del Sur, to no avail, we made our way to the tourist office. There they directed us down the street and around the corner to some travel offices that apparently ran buses to Juliaca. Of course, when we hunted them down they were all closed or told us that they did not provide such a service.
Tearing ourselves away from the stream of musicians and dancers we resumed our food hunt only to stumble upon a late night travel agency that ran a morning shuttle from Puno to the Airport. After grabbing a quick bite to each, and some longer shopping, we reconnected with Marko and Silvana at the town's Plaza de Armas for dinner. We ate at this sheik, fauz-European style restaurant that served Peruvian food with a twist. Kristi and I split Aplaca steak and mash potatoes, both of which were quite good. Then we parted ways with our new found friends to pack our gear for Isla Taquile the next day.
