A travel blog entry by lucieinsa


After a long bus journey down to Puno we spent a day exploring the Uros and Taquile islands on Lake Titicaca.

The Uros islands are a group of 73 floating islands made of reeds. Each one takes a year to make and lasts for around 25 years. They´re big enough and strong enough to live on - the one we visited had five families who made a living from a combination of fishing and tourism.

Each island has a president (some female) who, rather than ...
