Lake Titicaca's "Floating Islands"

We boarded our Lake Titicaca tour boat at the Puno harbor dock
A channel through the reeds used by the Uros to create "Floating Islands" on Lake Titicaca

Approaching Isla Apu Inti, the "Floating Island" we visited (but one of many such islands)

Our guide, Richard, with the leader of the Isla Apu Inti families

If you jump on the "Floating Island" - as BJB and I did - it moves!
