FABIO'S REVIEW

The Titicaca lake is the highest navigable lake in the world. I have been hearing this funny name for years (as a kid I called it Pipicaca, French readers will understand) and wanted to visit it for so long… so, after many hours of bus and boat trips from La Paz, I finally arrived, to discover that the Titicaca lake is, in fact, just a lake.
