LAKE TITICACA PERU An Aymara girl on the Uros floating islands in the Bay
of Puno. In the 1960s the islands were inhabited by a small number of people living
in the traditional way of the Urus and here the girl is tending the kitchen fire
behind a wind break of dried totora reed. The fire is built of clay and stones
carried from the mainland and her pots are traditional hand made terracota.
