LAGO TITICACA E ILHA TAQUILE (II)!
TITICACA LAKE AND TAQUILE ISLAND (II)!
LAGO TITICACA Y ISLA TAQUILE (II)!
LAC TITICACA ET ÎLE TAQUILE (II)!

During a "one-day" tour in the LAKE TITICACA, I visited the TAQUILE ISLAND (In the peruvian side of the lake, because it is in the border between PERU and BOLIVIA; it's also the largest island in the whole lake, with 6 square kilometers and 45km away from the city of PUNO - some sources say 15 miles, others, 35km)!
A place with no electricity, neither many other modern devices!
People there (around 1,700 inhabitants) try to live as simple as they can!
In this picture, a bit of the local architecture and the people who live there, with their typical clothes!
A curiosity: men are the ones who knit there!
The lake looks like a sea, but it's around 3,800masl!
I really thought I was transported not only in space, but in time as well! I enjoyed the visit, but would hate to live there!
