It was about an hour ride to the first island of Uros. This is a community made up of 80 islands floating on Lake Titicaca. The islands are manmade our of reeds that are pulled from the lake. They build these islands that can float for up to 30 years, which is ...

After this we went swimming and jonny was getting boners in the pool. We did a bit of shopping and went back to campsite. We woke up in the night so cold it's unreal. We also brought a frisbee and played a bit of that. Day seventeen - today was the day of the bungey and the swing, we woke up and jonny made ...
