Toothbrushes in Taquile

Our family just recently completed a trek across Peru.  We rode bicycles and zip-lined, but mostly we hiked and hiked and hiked (uphill). Our main destination was one of the Seven Wonders of The World, Macho Picchu.  We succeeded and the view was spectacular.

Another part of our adventure involved staying with a local family on the Island of Taquile.  Taquile is located on Lake Titicaca, the highest navigable lake in the world at 12507 feet.  They graciously shared their meals and their home and were proud to show off their textile skills and beautiful island.  IMG_3903
