Favorite thing: There is really not much to see or do in Taquile. But if you are looking for a relaxed place to chill out, sit for hours contemplating the lake's waters, hearing the birds singing, enjoying the silence... this is the place for you. At night there is no electric illumination, just the stars above. And there are many, as this place is really high!
Fondest memory: The playful smiling children on this island are one of my favorite memories of Peru. This little girl was playing with a piece of plastic with her friends when I took this picture. Later my brother and I went out on the soccer pitch and played some soccer with the local kids during recess. After a few our lungs burned out due to the altitude and the kids ran circles around us. Brilliant!
Favorite thing: All around the island there are many of these stone archs, specially at the entrance/way out of the main villages.
no cats,no dogs,no bikes,no cars,no electricity.....
Fondest memory: where men knit...and knit...
the only noise,knitting....:-)))
a man wearing a white pointed cap means he is unmarried!
