Bloggers’ Bliss — See our streetwear come to life
Cruising on Lake Titicaca, near Puno, Peru, we passed the floating villages of the Uros people on their man made islands of reeds. Most everything they construct, including their homes, is of the reeds

RBthanks for that comment…these islands are pretty small since they are all man made from reeds, so it’d need to be a short time there for me….
