Lake Titicaca

 A day off the bikes, we're at high altitude, 4500m (nearly 15,000ft) we need some time to acclimatise and to take in our surroundings.The group head out to the Uros islands - incredible floating reed islands on Lake Titicaca, legend has it that the tribes on them chose to move to islands that float so that they could escape from their war-like neighbours hundreds of years ago.

I wave them off from the bank

I visited the islands myself several years ago, they really are an incredible place, this is one of the scenes that I missed out on! They're up to no good on the islands

 

One of many great meals we had
