An Uros girl rowing between floating islands, Peru

Although the Uros - a Peruvian tribe, living on floating reed islands on Lake Titicaca - still build and maintain the traditional huge reed boats for tourist purposes, for speedy transport from place to place they themselves seem to prefer the more familiar rowboat. In the background you can see several of their reed buildings on some of these floating islands.
