Copacabana

We arrived in Bolivia a few days ago and stopped in Copacabana for a little recharge before heading off the Isla del Sol and Isla del Luna. This is a cute little beach town where the sun seems to shine everyday. Here is our friend, Sergio, from Colombia that we met on the bus from Puno.

Came back […]

The heat and humidity here is intense but a welcome change from winter in Vancouver. I was very happy to be greeted at the airport […]
