ISLAND of the SUN, BOLIVIA ..........According to Inca folklore, the Island of the Sun was the home of their supreme god, Inti.

There was a small community that lived on the Island of the Sun and they were set up for visitors.  There was a temple to the sun not far from the docks, but I didn't find a path to it.  My guess was you had to climb high up the mountain to cross over to the temple.  I climbed halfway up the mountain.  That was far enough.

In the high altitude, that was all that was going to be managed. But, halfway up the mountain, I found what I wanted - two very young girls with two very young alpacas. They posed for photos, and they were simply adorable.

I still think any tour should have included a stop at the Temple of the Sun.  Mine didn't, others did.  So, I was very pleased that at least we passed by the temple on the boat ride back to Copacabana.  I would have been even happier if we stopped to explore.  Perhaps I need to write a letter to the tourism board or Barry Manilow.
