Uros Floating Islands
Uros Floating Islands–Taquile, and other islands on lake Titicaca is truly amazing to experience their people who have lived since immemorial time, they remain starkly traditional – Campesinos (peasants) wear sandals recycled from truck tires, women work in petticoats and bowler hats, and llamas are tame as pets. Quechua and Aymara-speaking residents work the fields with primitive tools, sail the lake with primeval caballitos de totora (reed boat), and harvest crops with methods unchanged since the days of the Incas, Uros Floating Islands where Indian communities consisting of just a few families construct tiny islands out of totora reeds, It is truly amazing!
