Peruvian beer time with Jackie Lope (Laura Cahill)
We said our goodbyes to our Amantani family, and headed back to Puno. We made a stop at the Uros floating islands - super cool! It feels like walking on a water bed. They make their islands, houses, boats, handicrafts out of Tatora reed - they even eat it! We tried some it was pretty good, really neat texture. the showed us how the island are constructed using peat moss and layers of the reeds. We checked out the trout pond and the crazy birds they raise. They raise Flamingos! They said they eat them when a family is pregnant to help the baby grow.
We left our Uros friends and headed back to Puno. We said our goodbyes to our guide, showered and had a great dinner in the hotel restaurant.
