The people of the islands on #LakeTiticaca were so sweet and wonderful. These girls had their alpaca and joined us for time at a Sacred fountain spring coming right out of the mountain. Beautiful lake vistas surrounded us, and the water was beautiful. I even saw an old Incan style boat with red robed men manning it. Gorgeous water, but edges where people have dumped trash on the hillsides with no regard for the affect on the landscape... #resonanceacademy#delegategathering#delegate2018#radg2018 @resonancescience #Bolivia
We spent four days on Lake Titicaca. Two on the Peruvian side, checking out the islands made of totora reeds and savoring our last moments in Peru. Then, two on the Bolivian side, gathering our bearings in a new country and drinking beers at sunset. At 3,808 meters, Lake Titicaca is highest navigable body of water in the world. And at 8,400 sq km, it’s also the biggest. This rickety ferry across the lake marked our true entry into Bolivia, and we are eager to find out what this country has to offer. -Kira -
In Andean culture, Lake Titicaca is the birthplace of the sun, and the Uru people of the lake’s captivating totora reed islands, are its sons. These 120 islands, floating gently on the lake’s tranquil surface, house entire villages, themselves made entirely from totora. As you walk across the reed islands and witness the radiant smiles and vibrant colours of this predominantly matriarchal community, it is clear to see why the Uru men, women and children are called the Sons of the Sun.
