It wasn't the easiest night but it was better than we thought. There was no heating and the temperature gets down to freezing but we had loads of very heavy blankets each. I did have to wee in the night which was more akin to being on a campsite and dragging on my jeans and shows but I coped. Breakfast was homemade local bread and jam with coffee or Muna tea. It's not really tea but "mate" as they call it or an infusion of the muna plant in hot water - actually very tasty. It was then time to be off for the next Island.
The home stay was a great experience but not an easy one. We're glad we did it but wouldn't do it again.
An hour later we arrived at Tequile island. This was different, maybe a little more advanced as there were shops and restaurants on the island. We were dropped on one side of the island and had a long but not too steep walk up through the community where we could see them using the pre-Incan terracing to grow their vegetables. We stopped in the main square to see their knitting displays and then headed on to our restaurant for lunch. Alexander had arranged for us to go to a place with possibly the most incredible view of any restaurant on the planet. We were outside on the top of this hill and all sat on one side of a table looking out over the lakes and the Andes. The trout we ate had been caught that morning and everything was perfect.
After lunch it was down 500 steps to the other dock where our boat was waiting to take us the 3 hours back to Puno.
We must take this opportunity to thank Alexander for looking after us so we'll. It would have been so much harder without him.
Back in Puno we wandered around the market and then had pizza and Pisco Sours for dinner in a nice local place.
