This is certainly one of the strangest & most interesting places we have ever been to 😍. The floating straw islands on lake Titicaca, at almost 4000 metres above sea level, on the border of Bolivia. .
The inhabitans orginally excaped here to avoid working under terrible condtitions for the Spanish in the silver and gold mines. About 5000 inhabitants live here today, but after trout was introduced in the lake, fishing has declined and the community is in danger and lives more and more of tourism.
