July 10 - Lake Titicaca (#48)

Jenny and I paddled out in a double from Puno to the Uros floating Islands in Lake Titicaca. It was pretty cool to be paddling at 3850 m (over 12500 ft!) and gorgeous conditions. We paddled out through the reeds, seeing lots of water birds (and a fair bit of garbage!) and reached the Uros floating Islands village (clearly visible in the track). This community is made up of about 40 islands made from floating totora reeds. It was pretty neat to see, though a bit touristy. After this we joined a regular group to go out to Amantani and Taquile Islands for an overnight.
