Uros Island {Puno, Peru}

Monday May 29, 2007

Went to the Uros Islands {floating islands today. The islands are made of reeds and 3-10 families live on each of the islands. The islands were originally built to keep Pizzaro from taking the people slaves. These islands provided the seclusion needed to keep them from being found. The occupants must add up to 3 feet of reeds to their islands every 6-9 months to keep them afloat.
