Lake Titicaca - The floating Islands

We were in our hotel lobby in Puno. Suddenly there was a knock at the door. There was a man standing on the doorstep.
First he walked us down the road, then he drove us to the harbour then we walked to the boat. It was a speedboat. We travelled to the straw floating Islands, they belong to the Uros people. IMG_201705..4038767_HDR.jpg
We said "Walike". When we arrived on the island the first step we took it felt squishy.
We dressed up in a skirt, cardigan and bowler hat. Then we took off the clothes.
After that we went on a straw boat. It was so big it was a double decker boat with people rowing it plus plus puma's heads made out of straw.
