UROS floating islands,a lie..and...a peep show!
last uros died ,100 years ago,sapped by alcohol and poverty.
clever aymaras have understood the financial interest they can manage....settled in the empty islands and passed themselves off as uros ' descendants!
only remains a life style!
nowadays,only selling handicrafts!
moreover,men are in puno...you'll meet only women and children receiving tourists....
more pics in TRAVELOGUE!
Unique Suggestions: a lot of islands....visit only the first one: the tallest one with a interesting church ,hidden among reeds.
Fun Alternatives: if you have to choose between floating islands and taquile,don't hesitate:go to TAQUILE!
if you want to have a look on floating islands,on your way to taquile,try and ask the boat to stop on one island to take photos!Related to:
