Photographer's Note

Lake Titicaca is not only a tourist attraction of Uros. Perhaps Uros Islands in the bay of Puno is the least interesting, because there is nothing original, "indigenous" people (normally living in Puno) show daily theater on Uros islands for tourists only. I recomend to travel to islands in the lake outside the bay, it is much more interesting. These islands are accessible by boat without travel agencies and their prepared program. But knowledge of Spanish is necessary.

Here is one of a few wealthy residents of Titicaca. Regardless of "newish" sail, he owns a boat. The holes in the sail are useful in a strong wind.
