Taquile and back to Puno
Two 65-year-olds looking for Adventure! in Peru
Taquile has a wonderful textiles shop/museum -- the styles of the knitted hats, I find, are quite different from island to island.
After our hike around this charming island where the people couldn't be friendlier, lots of smiles and ''buenos dias'' we are back on the boat and cruise back to Puno.
On this trip we don't have the boat all to ourselves, as we have agreed to take a few ''hitchhikers'' over to the mainland with us. One fellow is carrying a propane tank (the size we use on our barbecues at home) to have it filled. Ah, island life!
