Lake Titicaca - Peru

One of my friends and I have constantly been talking about a trip to Peru, it's one of those trips we want to do together, just don't know when, not this year for sure. My friend went to Bolivia last summer and has been to the Titicaca Lake, I'm pretty sure she wants to visit the peruvian side of the lake too.
Ara has been there last October and that's when she sent me the 1st of these cards. The 2nd was sent by Mery in 2008.

Located between Bolivia and Peru, Lake Titicaca is one of the most fascinating lakes in the world. It is situated at a very high altitude, at over 3800 meters above sea level, and a tour at Titicaca is definitely an unforgettable experience for any visitor. 

When visiting Lake Titicaca, the town of Puno is the best place to stay, on the Peruvian side of the lake.
The town of Puno is an interesting place to visit as it is the capital of folklore of Peru.
Lake Titicaca is a sacred place for the Inca civilization, as the Incan mythology says that the first Inca king, Manco Capac, was born here. According to the Incan mythology, this is the place where the world was created from, when the god Viracocha came out of the lake and created the sun, the stars and the first people. 
You will have many places to discover on the shore of Lake Titicaca, as well as on the many islands that exist on the lake. - in: http://laketiticaca.com/
