Last post about Peru before I move on to Spain. As if we weren't nature'd out enough, here we are taking a boat trip around the floating islands of Lake Titicaca, only the highest commercially navigable lake in the world (didn't you pay attention in 2nd grade?). They recommend sunglasses and a lot of sunscreen because the waters are super clear and reflective.
No cars or bikes; or roads, for that matter
Sturdy Viking-like boats made from aforementioned reeds
Our guide leads us to one of the few restaurant on the small plaza where we dock. The restaurant only serves the 2 local classics: sopa de quinoa, a hearty quinoa soup, and pejerey, local kingfish from the lake.

We had one night left in Puno, and decided we liked the kingfish enough to eat it again.
Before we left, we also wanted to try coca tea since we're told it can heal a variety of sicknesses and greatly boost energy. Cocaine comes from coca leaves; hence, customs does not allow one to bring back coca leaves. And that concludes my adventures in the great outdoors.
