Lake Titicaca, page 7

Location: Puno, Peru

visit to the reed islands

The welcome to our reed island

Reeds planted in the lake, cultivated to build the islands

Traditional dress of the Uros...this little girl's name was Eileen.

Each island has its own enclosure

Guess who was dressed up as the leader's wife!

Demonstration of traditional crafts..

Traditional reed boat, we sat on the platform at the top to leave our family's island...

And of course the 'shop' selling home made crafts

The port at Taquile Island where we went for lunch. Quite a prosperous island where the islanders successfully use the ancient Inca terraces and irrigation systems to grow their crops.

And pass through other islands communities whole families live on their own island, each family members have their own hut as the family enlarges, spot the solar panel used to power their tv and radio essential to retain communication links with the outside world.

The rugged shoreline of the island.

Ninety six and tending sheep on the path up to the restaurant.
