We took a car to pick you up, so there was a car to pick you up, to the dock, and a small electric boat to pick you up. First bought tickets at a small pavilion on the lake, and then arrived at the floating island where his house was located 20 minutes later. They were all barefoot and stepped directly on the reeds. It seems that this has always been the case, so their feet won't hurt. When I went to the island, it was just in the evening, and the light was very good, and there were beautiful pictures taken everywhere: the island, the reed room, the hammock, the chair, the observation deck, and a cat. Dinner came at 18:30. It was chicken, tomato and tortillas. Tonight, there were only three of us tourists on this island. It was very quiet. The next day after breakfast, he took his boat to make a lap on the lake, and left after lunch.

We landed for about an hour and heard stories about how the island was built and maintained, we visited some houses and talked to some locals. There were also opportunities for some textiles, of course. We sailed to another island on a traditional reed boat which cost a few dollars but was well worth it. It was the beginning of a great day on the lake.
M32***23We thought mass might be at noon so we arrived at 11:00. The crowds were just beginning. After the service we returned at noon and were given a photo when they closed. Was amazed at the end. It was an elegant interior.

Taquile is an island on the Peruvian side of Lake Titicaca 45 km offshore from the city of Puno. About 2,200 people live on the island, which is 5.5 by 1.6 kilometres in size, with an area of 5.72 km². The highest point of the island is 4,050 metres above sea level and the main village is at 3,950 metres. The inhabitants, known as Taquileños, speak Puno Quechua. Taquileños are known for their fine handwoven textiles and clothing, which are regarded as among the highest-quality handicrafts in Peru. Knitting is exclusively performed by males, beginning in early boyhood. Women spin wool and use vegetables and minerals to dye the wool to be used by the community. Women are also the weavers of the Chumpis, the wide belts with woven designs worn by everyone in the community of Taquile.
Lake Titicaca, straddling the border between Peru and Bolivia in the Andes Mountains, is one of South America's largest lakes and the world’s highest navigable body of water. Said to be the birthplace of the Incas, it’s home to numerous ruins. Its waters are famously still and brightly reflective. Around it is Titicaca National Reserve, sheltering rare aquatic wildlife such as giant frogs.
Other cultures lived on Lake Titicaca prior to the arrival of the Incas. In 2000, a team of international archaeologists and divers found the ruins of an underwater temple, thought to be between 1,000 and 1,500 years old, most likely built by the Tiwanaku people. The ruins have been measured to be 200 by 50 m (660 by 160 ft). The temple was accompanied by a village, some roads, terraces for farming and a retaining wall that ran for 800 meters.
On the Kayao Plateau at the junction of Bolivia and Peru, there is the world's largest plateau freshwater lake. Such a floating island completely woven from reeds faces the sun and the lake. There is no sound except the natural sound. Pull the children to go boating together, play with nature, play with the children, completely empty, high? nonexistent. Its name is a bit strange: Lake Titicaca
Once upon a time there was a floating island with a reed that was small to the island that was not shown on the map... The blue plateau of the lake, the crispy reed, the footsteps of the boat, the straw chair, and the three-year-old hand. The bear child who has succeeded in the mouth... The so-called years are so good.

Looking for a piece of reed, stacking up a floating island, covering a few cottages, raising a few fish, ducks, rowing their own boats, spending 10 minutes to go to the opposite side of the island to buy two bags of noodles and the way to the neighbors said that the leisure here is not extravagant Time is not busy, people are not anxious. The smile here is overflowing from life...
