Travel Photo of the Week: Copacabana, Bolivia

After spending a night on an island in Lake Titicaca, I continued my journey from Puno, a lakeside town on the Peru side, onwards to La Paz, Bolivia. Along the way I stopped at Copacabana, just over the border. Pictured is the Basilica of Our Lady of Copacabana where you can find the Sanctuary of the Black Virgin, a wood carving of Mary by Francisco Tito Yupanqui in 1592. The hill nearby is called Calvary (Calvario) which features stations of the Seven Sorrows of Mary and a great view of the lake. But the one thing I remember most about my short bus layover in Copacabana is not being able to get that damn Barry Manilow song out of my head. (Don’t click the link. Seriously. I warned you.) This was shot on a Pentax K1000 (film!).
