Time to say goodbye to Taquile Island - what a wonderful time we had. A beautiful and peaceful island located on Lake Titicaca in southern Peru. It was well worth the boat ride out and although I did not get the opportunity to enjoy a home-stay here, I’m sure it would be a fantastic experience.
No need to oil the gate hinges here!
Nearing the boat dock for our trip back to Puno on the calm Lake Titicaca.
A monument on the side of the hill - I’m not sure what it’s significance was and at that moment, there were no locals around to ask.
Raising sheep is one, if not the most popular, form of farming on the terraces on Taquile Island.There is usually a sheep herder in the area - note that the sheep’s front and back legs are tied with a rope - long enough for them to walk slowly but short enough so that they can not run away.
Some Taquile locals taking an afternoon break.
Goodbye Taquile Island - I thoroughly enjoyed my time here - time to catch our boat back to the city of Puno and catch the airplane back to Lima from the nearby airport in Juliaca. What a gorgeous island you are - Taquile!
