A Travellerspoint blog


sunny 25 °C

Puno was nice. We only spent 2 nights there and it was alive with local election activity, lots of people marching in the streets behind bands and flag waving supporters.

We went to the floating islands which were nice but now they seem a little touristy. It's obvious that no one really lives on the islands anymore, they just come in in the morning with all the wares to sell to us and then go back to the mainland after all the tourists have gone home. Interesting to see how they make these islands though.

We also went to the temple of Fertility which is a stoned walled garden with lots of large stone penises erected (snigger) within it. We sat on a few as it's meant to be good luck and because it was very funny. Laura and I are now both expecting twins. I wanted a bit of luck but wasn't expecting a miracle!!!

Laura says:
A little girl of about 8 approached us as soon as we entered the gates & became our guide, whether or not we wanted one she wasn't going anywhere. She spoke very little English & just kept saying "pene" & I kept repeating it after her, it then dawned on me we had just been saying "penis" over & over again to each other, what an interesting conversation that was.

And I think that's it for Puno.

Can you tell I'm getting bored writing this blog now?

In fact is anyone still reading it...?

Laura says:
I'm reading it but only cause I have to!

Next stop Cusco

I'm still reading it but you're right, it's getting a bit boring now. you can tell you're getting to the end off it - go back and have a read of the Vietnam stuff for inspiration. I'm a bit worried about greggers too - what sort of blog does he think this is?!
