Our next group tour to Peru is next week so we thought it would be fitting to share one of our favorite travel photographs from our first adventure here a few years ago! This cute little Peruvian girl lives in the Puno area on the border of Bolivia. Her home is on the famous floating islands of Lake Titicaca which are comprised of dried reeds that grow rampantly in the surrounding waters. These bundled totora reeds are always being made and added to the small islands because they are constantly sinking as the reeds at the bottom fall apart and float away. We can’t wait to get back to Peru and photograph these beautiful people and their stunning landscapes yet again!
