Gist: Have you ever heard of a floating island? Well, if you haven’t, then Puno is the place to be. Straddling Lake Titicaca, this town boasts the culture of the Uros people who still live there post-colonialism. Some of its inhabitants live on mud and grass matter that floats in the lake, making them floating islands that move around Titicaca. Truly, a cultural experience unlike any other.
