    Porters

    by SirRichard Written Jun 16, 2005

    As I arrived to the island I found those enormous stairs that lead to Yumani. Suddenly several young boys came to me offering me their services as porters. It was sunday, so I guess there had some free time and wanted to earn some extra money so I let one (about 10 years old) carry my heavy rucksack (see pic). He did a wonderful job, and I could easily climb the 200 steps, while other travelers were exhausted at the beginning while I was at the top!
    I paid him 10 Bs (1,6 USD), but don't ask me if it's enough or too much, he didn't give me a price, so I thought 1/3 of the room fare would be enough.

    I wouldn't have made that stair on my own with the rucksack!! :-))

    Some look at Viracocha, others believe in him and these fellows take him seriously. It is all about health anyway.
