two islands. My, oh, my! How times had changed.
There were many homes that were now made of metal or had metal roofs.
I saw television antennas as well as solar panels. The Uros
were really prepared for tourism, too. At the first island,
all their handicrafts were set up for display. And, everyone
got an introduction about how the islands were really made.
first trip, I rode one of their reed boats. It might have
been five minutes, but I rode in one. This time there was
a special made reed tourist boat to take the group to the next island.
second island was set up with a bar and restaurant. Of course,
there were more souvenirs. It was even harder to find photos
to take. I did, however, like the reed outhouse with a clay toilet.
That made the trip worthwhile.
