  crossing the border by foot
by Elisabcn

We had not planned to go to Bolivia but once we were in Puno the border was so close that we could not resist the temptation to cross it! And it would have been a pity to explore only one side of the Titicaca Lake, especially when the history of the Incas begins in Islas del Sol and Luna, situated on the Bolivian side.
We took a public bus from Puno direction to La Paz. The bus stopped only few metres before the border and everybody had to go off the bus. At the beginning we did not understand the purpose but it seems that we had to cross the border by food and before going to the police office to register and put the stamp. Few metres forward the bus was waiting for us to continue the trip. It was a funny way to cross a border!
