Image of the week: A floating haven

Lake Titicaca’s Uros Islands, made entirely out of totora reeds, are home to the Uros tribe. The same reeds are also used by the residents of the islands to provide transport, sustenance and shelter.

Pre-dating the Inca Empire, the Uros population currently resides at around 2000. They consider themselves to be the owners of the lake they’ve made their home, and they earn their living by weaving, fishing, and the capitalising on the region’s most recent development – tourism.
