8 soles collectivo to the Yunguyo, 2 soles motorcycle taxi to the border, 25 bolivianos private taxi from the border to Copacabana

Took a collectivo from the Terminal Zonál in Puno to the border town of Yunguyo (8 soles); a little hot, seeing as the locals want to keep all the windows closed while sweating away and wearing thick jackets... madness. From the Yunguyo a motorcycle taxi (somewhat like a tuktuk in overall construction) took us up to the border, where we eventually figured out the process (first, go to the police office next to the Migracion building, then the Migraction building, then walk over the building and hit up the Bolivian Migracion building).

From the border we took a private taxi (25 bolivianos, couldn't be bothered waiting for the completely empty collectivo to fill up) along the incredibly battered cross country route (a new road is being build, ready in about four months apparently) in to Copacabana.
