Day 5 – Traveling Around Peru

I wake up fairly early with again a pretty short amount of sleep but ready for the next adventure. I packed all my stuff and gear and headed into the lodge area that had glass panels floor to ceiling with one of the best views I have ever seen besides Switzerland. It was majestic. There was a llama tied to a rope in the front of the building but as you looked out there was just so much to see – everything so beautiful and blossoming. It was amazing.


Today our trip was to Puno. I couldn’t stop taking pictures of the view – I did my best to remember every piece of it but today was a new adventure and it was sadly time to go. We got on the bus and began our long ride to Puno.

We arrived pretty late and were all going to head out for dinner and then head to bed. A couple people stayed back because the altitude was really getting to them, as the altitude in Puno was over 3700 meters. I myself chose to grab some food and head back to the room and eat there and finally try to sleep one normal night. I just wanted some rest and this night the hotel was pretty nice and a few times throughout the night I stopped again at the lobby to get some oxygen. The elevation was starting to get to me but I was going my best to stay ahead of it.
