ISLA DEL SOL:
[/u]
The boat trip and the island were beautiful. We walked around the island, met some donkeys and watched an enormous moon rise over the lake. On the day before we left, i experienced my first ever migraine though so spent the whole day in bed. I don't know how people cope with them, they are absolutely horrendous!!!!!!!

Puno was a bit of a nothing town, nicer than we were told but the lake was smelly and ugly here. We stayed in a hotel, which was cheap but we learnt that the lying happens in Peru too as they told us there would definitley 'siempre' (always) be hot water and there was NONE and also i got bitten by bed bugs in the bed. When i told them about this, they said I was lying!! Needless to say we didn't pay the full price!
