Peru - Day 9 Part V - Isla Taquile
Isla Taquile is home to about 2,200 people who make their living producing high quality woven items. Of course, the tourists are the major purchasers of these products.
The group had to do a little climbing to get to lunch and the great views from the hillside. Our guide said that it takes tourists 20 minutes to make the 5 minute walk up the hill. Don't forget, we are still at 12,500 feet.
