The time I took a swim in Laguna Asnacocha

It’s the last Monday of the week. The world is in a world of hurt and you need a cheap laugh? Preferably something authentic not from a meme-porn mill? Well lay your eyes on my swimming adventures in Laguna Asnacocha. Watch all the way to the end.

Laguna Asnacocha is over 3,800 meters (~12,500 feet) elevation. There’s a nice area where you can see the bottom and then a steep drop where the bottom completely goes out of sight. I’m a pretty good swimmer but as a semi-retired ferry pilot I’m well aware of the dangers of cold water. Even without the – ahem – encouragement of the public to return I wasn’t about to go swimming much further 🙂
