Hi , everyone
I m suscribe in travellers points isnce 1 year ago, but i never thought to write about my experiences travelling. Well, here wwe go, sorry for my english .. Im a peruvian, so please dont be mad with me.
well, the history started like this, 5 years ago, i heard abiut a great party in Puno , called the famous party for a famous virgen" candelaria" ,somebody told me," if you go to Puno, you can get bed for free , beers for free and parties every day, so. young people, like me and my cousin we were looking for something we can do together.
So we took our bus to Puno , and arrive in Puno, it wa s true, parties everywhere , people dancing with multicolot dresses, beers everywhere. We enjoy this party for 1 week, after this time, we went to viist other villages. Only 12 minutes from Puno is the great village of Chucuito.They have a very nice main square, they still have some colonial houses around, and many culture from the altiplano, they didnt have many hostels at that time. We discover one beautiful hotel, all built in stone.I have to admit .. I FALL IN LOVE OF THIS HOTEL, there were no one at te hostal, only hilda and edgar ,the 2 peopke who were take caring of the hotel.
Now after 5 years later, im working in tourism, i learned new things , now im promoting through internet the Hotel Glorieta, we have an english volunteer teaching english to the community for few months and we have alreday the next 2 volunteer coming in october.
The people from the village took me to one formidable area called PENINSULA DE CHUCUITO .. the view of the lake is just Fantastic .... now, we are organizing lunches next to the lake with the colaboration of the community. I think God or Life had a mission for me , the mission to have the open eyes to see waht the others they cant see.
People from the comunities are amazing , so friendly . Im still remenber, that beautiful lady who tell us a poem is " aymara" watching the lake titicaca . After that , you can feel .. GOD , life is so perfect , thanks to be here....
