Taquile Island is another step back in time. We strolled the cliff tops gazing across to Bolivia and the Cordillera Real mountains covered in snow… quite magic and even a bit mystical.
The men on the island knit hats and these are tied up with intricate courtship rituals that are hilarious… you can tell who is married by their knitted hat… and married men also wear belts woven with their wife’s hair… everything they wear seems to have a significant meaning… as well as looking fabulous of course!
The Islanders are so colourful against the stark rocky landscape. I really was inspired by the whole Titicaca experience.
All fascinating and unique and worth the nine hour overnight bus ride back to Cusco after a long day of endless steps and cruising Lake Titi.
