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.
Copacabana is the main Bolivian town on Lake Titicaca. On weekends owners park their vehicles in front of the cathedral to receive an elaborate 'cha'lla' or ritual blessing from priests. They decorate their vehicles and make petitions to the Virgin for protection.
