Brodin's blog about Peru

The reed islands


View South America and Cuba on Fletchers's travel map.

We are in Puno in Peru. We went on 2 Reed Islands man made. The reeds where squishy. It was kind of Fun when you walk on them.
A long boat ride and a long walk and back to the boat again. The reeds are living in the water the people weave the reeds together to make the Island of reeds. They also put a rope between the reeds to stick the reeds together, then they build houses on top of the reed islands and the houses are made out of reeds too and they sell things in stacks on tables that they make. I was going to get something but it was too expense so we weren't to a different place and i got a red necklace for me and a blue necklace for Eve.
