This was part of our trip to Bolivia. Puno is so close to La Paz that just takes 3-4 hours on bus to go from one city to another.
"Corregidor" is a rennaisance term that was given to a magistrate appointed by the king to work in the colonies.

This is what we called "The eclectic photo":

Playmobiles are sharing a candy :D

Here, in Bruno's gps, is the altitude of Puno city, in meters:



And, on Bruno's phone, the news about "El Friaje" last August (cold winds from the south pole that reach east side of South América and make termperature drop several degrees):


Translation:
"La República Newspaper: Because of prevention, The President declares emergency state in 250 district affected by freezing temperatures."

Yep, we were climbing el Huayna Potosí when El Friaje reached Bolivia. Then it passed on Peruvian east side. Cold winds lose energy on their travel across South América an die when reaching Ecuador's latitude. So El Friage is felt at is coolest in Argentina.
Current Location: Puno - Perú (August 2013)
Current Music: Amistades Peligrosas - Lágrimas de Metal

Hi Chris!!
I can't remember the name of that snack. It was in the desserts list and it was like a cake, but made of cream :D
