La Vida Más Alta
September 16, 2011
The thing about planning adventures: un poco difícil mientras aventureas.
We’re gonna give you a hand on this one.
Es más, te daremos dos. This is heavy stuff.
Primero: Lake Titicaca, the spiritual epicenter of Incan civilization, the highest lake in the world and the largest lake in South America. Segundo: Titilaka, your new home base away from home for ventures of the relaxing kind, located on the edge of... wait for it... Lake Titicaca, now accepting reservations via phone or smoke signal. Impromptu shamanic guests in your room are, of course, free of charge.
Your reception will be in keeping with ancient local customs. A Land Rover escort will pick you up from the airport and take you on a speedboat cruise across Lake Titicaca to your perfectly preserved península privada. Okay, so maybe they’ve updated a few of those customs.
Because you never leave home without at least one pair of boardshorts, a rebreather and handheld sonar, prepare for daily excursions to a lost underwater city or two. But first take your time to enjoy your room’s original artwork: floor-to-ceiling canvases (you can just call them windows) of the deepest blues visible to the human eye.
Then reach deep into your energy reserves for a mandatory hike up to La Puerta de Amaru Muru, believed by local chamánes to be an interdimensional portal.
Como dice el proverbio Inca: what happens in interdimensional portals...
