I'm back in the land of blogging - What can be more wet and watery than living on a floating island?
If you visit Lake Titicaca (12,507 ft. elev.), no doubt you'll make a brief stop at a group of floating islands, which are the home of the Uros tribe. Most of these islands are off limits to tourists, but several are accessible by tour boats. The islands are made of totora, a cattail type rush growing native in the lake. Its dense roots support the top layer, which rots and must be replaced regularly by stacking more reeds on top of the layer beneath. The islands change in size, and more are created as the need arises...
