14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Reed Boats - Lake Titicaca, Peru

While backpacking through Peru we stumbled on a city called Puno. High in elevation it holds the largest lake in South America. We took a boat out to the 'floating islands' where the inhabitants made not only the island out of reeds from the lake, but also their houses, beds, and these breath taking boats.
