Lake Titicaca

The Titicaca Lake, in the Andes, is the highest navigable lake and surrounds the Peruvian city of Puno, which lacks interest besides the lake itself. In this lake there are about 70 floating islands, made by their own inhabitants, with seaweed. They build the Island, the houses and the boats. In each Island lives about 4,5 or 6 families. They have a male and a female leader. I caught a boat and went there. One of the houses was a restaurant and I had my lunch there. You can see more drawings of Latina America in my blog.
