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

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, the "little harbor" where we disembarked to start our visit in the island!
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!
