... to the island called Taquille which reminded us a bit of a Greek island. Walking on the island was pretty hard because it was a very steep climb. When we reached the village square we again came across another civil celebration. Again the national anthem, bands playing and everyone dressed in their traditional costumes. We had lunch provided at a local's restaurant where we got to try trout. This has been introduced ...
