Village of Copacabana and it's beach on lake Titicaca
Trip has been continuining to Bolivia and lake Titicaca. On the Bolivian side of the lake there´s a small village called Copacabana (I guess the name comes from the fact there´s a beach like Rio´s copacabana :)) Anyhow village is quite pictoresque and beautifully located on the shore of Titicaca. The altitude of 3,8 km makes every movement a little slower than normally. I rented a kayak and did a short kayaking on the lake, but quite soon noticed it is much more exhausting to kayak at this altitude than on the sea level. After a while I had a bit headache and went back to hotel to rest for a while.

Now I´m spending a day at La Paz, which is the world´s highest capital city. The streets are narrow and steep, air is thin and there are lot´s of people. Buses and cars are making the air polluted, cause the city is located at valley (similar like Kathmandu in Nepal).
I have had stomach problems for awhile, they started in Peru before the Inca trail. Eight years ago when visiting Peru last time I had the worst and most painful stomach problems ever. It seems Peru is my nightmare and I don´t want to visit that country anymore. Everytime I´ll be sick there.
After Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia from South American countries I must admit that I don´t like South American countries like I did Central American countries. The central Anerica is my favourite so far. Let´s see if rest of the countries in South America change this view, but I doubt it.
