After breakfast, on the second day of the Lake Titicaca tour in Perú, together with my companions Wen and Del, I was escorted to the small harbour by the man of the household in which we had stayed, to meet up with the rest of our party. The islanders took their responsibility of looking after us very seriously, although we only stayed with them for one night. Presumably they would be receiving another batch of guests later that day and have to do it all over again.
We set off from Amantani, to the neighbouring island of Taquile where we would explore, then have lunch before returning to Puno. After dropping us off on one side of the island, the boat set off for the other side, leaving us to make our way over the top.
Although the cultures of all three islands we visited varied, it seemed that they all had a great pride in their history and tried to keep to tradition as best they could.
