Days 10-12: Puno and Lake Titicaca
<< Previous | Next >>

We took an organized tour on this day onto Lake Titicaca. The tour first brought us to the Uros Islands, a unique community of man-made islands floating in Puno's bay. The islands are made entirely of the reeds that grow in the bay. Centuries ago, the Uros people escaped from persecution on the mainland by creating these islands.
