The floating artificial islands

PERU: A visit to the Uros islands on lake Titicaca, is unlike any other tourist visits.

The Uro people make their islands, houses, boats and artifacts with totora reeds. They have done so for centuries. The islands are accessible from the mountain city Puno in the Peruvian Andes mountains.

Here are some pictures from when I visited the hand made islands in Peru, january 2010.
