The Uros Islands

The Uros Islands

When I was a child I read about islands that were made of reeds and floated on a lake somewhere in the depths of South America. The name of the lake humoured me, as it would any school boy, and the air of mystery and adventure that surrounded them intrigued me.

Now, thirty-odd years later, here we were sailing on lake Titicaca out to the floating reed islands of Uros.

We spent a fascinating couple of hours on two of the islands, learning about their history and heritage, about their construction and about life on the islands.
