A Midsummer Night’s Dream in Peru

By Linda Tancs

Lake Titicaca, located between Bolivia and Peru, is the highest navigable lake in the world.  Conveniently accessed from Juliaca airport, take the bus or a taxi to Puno, Peru’s capital of folklore.  Your midsummer adventure there should include the cylindrical Sillustani burial towers, one of the world’s most important necropolises just outside Puno.  The cathedral in Puno, built in 1757, is warm and inviting against a frosty midsummer night sky.  After all, the city is located over 3000 meters above sea level.
