Lake Titicaca at 5 a.m.

The view from our window at Sergio's aunt's house towards the east, which gives you just a hint of the enormous Lake Titicaca. Looking at the map below, we were in Puno looking east, seeing only the western-most section of the lake.

For centuries, the people here have believed that Lake Titicaca is sacred, and that the Incan gods were born from the waters here on the Altiplano. Looking at this map, you can see why this high-altitude sea might seem to have special powers.
