About an hour and a half by boat, it is an island that is about 1km wide and 5km long. The houses and little farms are built on the hills. They grow beans and lots of quinoa amongst other things. About 2000 people live on this island and there are no cars or motorcycles etc, just paths of dirt or stone and lots ...

Edgar advised that they still used it to bake bread but not often anymore. Edgar also gave us a map with the best route to find the bus depot for our tickets to the next town and how to find tickets for a tour of Lake Titicaca (Titiqaqa in Quechua). ...

    ... the lake water. Touristy it might be, but the fascinating visit is the equivalent of visiting a "living museum"

    Further out in the main part of the lake is the island of Taquile, home to around 2500 Quechua-speaking people. UNESCO has declared this island a site of outstanding cultural value, home as it is to people who are considered the finest weavers and knitters in all of Peru. It is particularly unusual in that while the women are the weavers, it's the men who ...
