Lake Titicaca

Some express tourism today - I arrived in Puno at 3.30, by 4pm I'd checked into a hotel and was on a boat trip to the floating reed islands on lake Titicaca.
The boats aren't quite as traditional as they look - each one is made of 3,000 plastic drink bottles and is then covered in reeds.
Depending on who you believe, at 3,920m lake Titicaca is either the world's highest navigable lake or it isn't. Even Lonely Planet can't decide - on the Peruvian side it says it is, on the Bolivian side it says it isn't.
