Photo of the Day: Innocence of a Child, Uros Islands, Peru

| Taken by Aracely | 1 Comment » | Photo of the Day

Uros are a pre-Incan people that live on forty-two self-fashioned floating man-made islets in Lake Titicaca near Puno, Peru.  They form three main groups: Uru-Chipayas, Uru-Muratos and the Uro-Iritos.  The Uros use the totora plant to make boats (balsas mats) of bundled dried reeds, and to make the islands themselves.  During our visit we used an organize tour with Edgard Adventures and we had a knowledgeable guide.  However the visit to the Uros Islands were a bit over the top as far as “tours”. It reminded Jason of “It’s a Small World” in Disney world.  They Uros people sang to us.
