Copacabana is a quiet little lake-side village. It’s a little touristy….but we are tourists. We enjoyed three days of peace and quiet. The weather was interesting as it rained quite a lot every night and then every day without fail, the sun came out and the afternoons were wonderful. Teresa and I were both pretty beat from the Salt Flats and took the time to re-generate and get ready for the next adventure.
A walk around town revealed some local artist paintings on the sides of buildings. You know me and street-art, I couldn’t resist taking a few photos…even if it entailed climbing the hill to get them! (We are still feeling a bit exhausted from the low oxygen levels due to the elevation).
A view of our hotel along the lake and the mountains in the background. The sky was the most beautiful blue!
This was my work-station for most of the time in Copacabana. I was able to get some blogs posted here and had all the necessary ingredients for successful writing. Laptop. Coffee. Cigarettes. Chocolate (M&M;s). And, most importantly….a beautiful view!
I believe that this is called the Cathedral of the Virgin. It was quite pretty and again you can see the Spanish influence that is spread throughout Bolivia.
Our walk through the streets of Copacabana revealed some unique architecture.
Teresa also enjoyed the view from the deck as she was researching the Lonely Planet for information on our next leg of the trip.
