(Series on my Trip to PERU - South America - VISITING THE TAQUILE ISLAND IN THE TITICACA LAKE - From September 6th to 22nd, 2007 - # 029!)



ILHA TAQUILE - LAGO TITICACA - PUNO - PERU
TAQUILE ISLAND - TITICACA LAKE - PUNO - PERU

One of the touristic attractions in the PUNO area is a boat ride in the TITICACA LAKE. I took one and spent the whole day enjoying the local beauty and culture.

In the TAQUILE ISLAND, local people try to live the same way they used to hundreds of years ago. For example, there's no electricity there!

My dear TE friend EMKA (Malgorzata) just reminded me another interesting thing about the culture in that islands: men are the ones who knit some items of clothes and they're there, everywhere, at anytime, for us to see them in their job!

In this picture, one can see the small harbor where we disembarked and started our short trekking up to the main village where we had some fish and other typical food. In the distance, one can also notice two of the several boats going to the other side of the island! The way back to land (the other harbor) was there (in the other side of the island) and after lunch we walked down back to get our boat towards the city of PUNO!
