We took a boat tour on to Lake Titicaca to see the floating islands. The people make these islands with reeds, 40 in total. Each belongs to a family. They have their own barter system, cultural norms and laws. We then went on to Tequile Island a few hours boat ride away. We happned on to a flag day celebration. The children here are amazing and so sweet. This island is almost autonomous as well, with the primary language being Quechua, the Inka┬┤s language.
