We arrived at Taquile mid morning, with promises from Junior that the steep hill in front of us was not as taxing as the previous day's. We only had to negotiate the first half, then we traversed across the island on a level path. Thank goodness, I don't think I could ...
Blue waters surrounded me from every angle. The light seemed to twinkle as it hit the water. The cool air welcomed me to this intriguing place, Lake Titicaca. I was taken in by the beauty of it all and seemed to simply hold my breath the entire time.
We began our journey by boarding a boat which took us to a floating island. A handful of people have built this island from reeds in the middle of the lake. My feet seemed to bounce on ...
