  • Great day on this island in the middle of the small plots of potatoes, barley or oats, corn, paths lined with stones, children selling handicrafts, sheep, terraced crops, residents wearing the chullo, there's no car, no bike, no hotel, Taquile and its textile art, its smiling and welcoming people , and always in the background of the blue of Lake Titicaca.
