Peru - Day 9 Part IV - Reed Boat Ride
For a very small amount of money, we took a ride on a reed boat. I can't say that it felt any different than any other boat of similar size, but it sure was a unique experience.
We were serenaded by the women as we left for the ride......Twinkle Twinkle Little Star might have been the only English language song they knew.
Now, I am beginning to wonder if we aren't missing something on this trip. If you viewed the Day 4 Part II post, you may recall that there was a group of people laying down at the bottom of the Moray Circular Terraces. I speculated that it was some kind of ceremony. We now we have a boat load of people laying down and I can't think of any good reason for them to do this except some kind of spiritual thing. I wish I would have asked one of our guides but I didn't. I may be plagued by curiosity about this behavior every time I look at these photo for the rest of my life.
