Dinner by Lake Titicaca

Abendessen.JPG

I only had – as always, for reasons of economy – a plate of quinoa soup and the Bolivian national drink Coca Cola, but the view was edifying enough. I had just returned from a hike to the uninhabited Kakayo Queña peninsula on the opposite side of the bay. And then a hummingbird came by, sucking the nectar from the flowers on the terrace it its typical helicopter-like flight, not allowing itself to be disturbed by my presence in the least.

    If still there, take the ferry, then head along the shoreline toward Peru and you’ll find a German couple who have a school with classes several times a year where they teach how to hand-power-drill water wells and to build and install their own human-powered pumps and water systems for potable use as well as irrigation. Videos on the internet. Jaw-droppingly amazing people who teach others to take back to their villages the skills they have learned. If you have any interest in that kind of thing, go visit and you won’t be disappointed, I am sure. ( One of my few regrets is that I couldn’t take the class due to mobility/time/space issues.)
    The lake–how beautiful–brings back great memories.

    • Thank you! I am not at Lake Titicaca anymore, but I loved the nature so much and it’s such a perfect hiking area (including lots of secluded bays to camp, soft grass to sleep in, villages where you can get supplies, and enough water obviously) that I am thinking of going on a complete circumnavigation of Lake Titicaca, both on the Peruvian and Bolivian side. That would take a few months, but I think it would be rewarding and interesting. I will have to plan that a bit more, but that could turn into an interesting book about the nature, the ecology, the environment and the ancient cultures around Lake Titicaca.
