Uros Islands

Sylvia, our guide is peeling back the totoro reed. This bottom part is what is eaten. Rich in calcium. Not bad.
we were being shown how the islands are built, how the reeds are wrapped, layered, etc. Pretty cute. These ladies were so cut and friendly.
and of course tried to sell you everything. I loved how colorful everything was. I made the mistake of not having enough solas. I did buy some things and a tiny little reed boat with a man and woman in it from a little boy.
It's all about color!!!!
