Puno is not a particularly attractive destination, a port city used as the jumping off point for day trips to Lake Titicaca, or so we’ve read.
It’s Saturday morning in Puno, and we go out to explore the city. This will be our last stop before moving on from Peru.
To our delight, it’s market day and the city streets are crammed with activity. We wander and take lots of pictures.
Even furniture and clothes stalls spill into the streets.
This gentleman was selling sugarcane beverage, extracting the miracle juice on the spot; benefiting the lungs, bronchitis, asthma, osteoporosis, prostate, cancer, and your overall mental and physical state.
But we settled on fruits to snack on as we meandered through the hectic outdoor markets. Puno may not be the prettiest place to visit but is certainly has lots of life.
