    Lago Titicaca

    November 19, 2017 in Peru ⋅ ⛅ 11 °C

    Directly arriving from Chivay and the Colca Canyon to Puno and the Titicaca Lake that Peru shares with Bolivia (Titi for Peru, Caca for Bolivia, people say :D).

    From Puno ships leave to the Uros islands and the main island Tacile. The Uros are artificial islands, where, as they tell you, live few families in traditional huts on their own small island floating on plants that swim on the surface. We couldn’t tell if the show that they demonstrate to tourists is in any way close to the truth, but at least it showed their special culture, clothes and handcrafts on the Titicaca lake. Tacile, in contrast, is a huge and real island, where several communities live peacefully together and still share these old traditions. During the trip you see that there are people that (chose to) live in a completely different world than we are today and where time seems to stand still.Read more
