Copacabana - La Paz

The
next day we returned taking a taxi to the city of La Paz,  we return with our friend of Brazil, who was very interesting for the first time, to cross the lake Titicaca in the “Strait of Tiquina”, since it has to go on a barge.

We arrived at "La Paz" by the way of the city of “El Alto" and then to introduce into the city center down the different areas until arrive to the district of Miraflores, where is my apartment.

During the afternoon we went to know La Paz through the different districts to know the everything possible, we arriving at the "South Zone" which is a residential area with various neighborhoods as Irpavi, Koani, Achumani, Cota Cota, and complete the ride the neighborhood of San Miguel, where they were rehearsing dances for the entry of Carnival.

After, we go through the center of the city and the tourist area of the Church of San Francisco and the streets "Sagarnaga", "Illampu" and "Linares" where is the “market of the witches” who is one of the tourist’s attractions, and then return to my department.

In Spanish:

 

Copacabana ��" La Paz

 

Al siguiente día tomando un taxi retornamos primero a la ciudad de La Paz, como retornamos con nuestro amigo brasilero para el fue muy interesante cruzar el lago por primera vez,  en el estrecho de Tiquina, ya que se lo tiene que pasar en barcaza, al igual que las movilidades.

 

Arribamos a “La Paz” por el ingreso que esta en la ciudad  anexa de “El Alto” para introducirnos hacia el centro de la ciudad bajando por las distintas zonas, hasta llegar al barrio de Miraflores donde queda mi apartamento.

 

Durante la tarde fuimos a pasear por distintas zonas de “La Paz” para conocer todo lo posible, llegando a la “Zona Sur” que es la zona residencial con distintos barrios como Irpavi, Koani, Achumani, Cota Cota, y concluir el paseo en el barrio de San Miguel, donde estaban ensayando bailes para la entrada de Carnaval.

 

Después paseamos por el centro de la ciudad y la zona turística de la Iglesia de San Francisco y las calles vecinas como la “Sagarnaga”, “Illampu” y “Linares”, esta ultima es donde se encuentra el “mercado de las brujas” que es uno de los atractivos turísticos, para luego retornar a mi departamento.

From Puno to Copacabana is 3 hours plus 1 hour in the border here are slow:)
The total trip cost Cuzco La Paz, I think it should now be about $us.40,--
I'm not sure if there is passenger train from Cusco to Puno, but better is by bus:)
