Brief Directions

A young Uro girl plays while her mother weaves the leaves of the totora reeds that keep their islands homes afloat.

Notes

On my second visit to Lake Titicaca, my goal was to stay on the islands for a week, exploring all the Uros islands and the culture therein. When I saw these two ladies interacting as if no one was watching, I took the opportunity to take a slice of life that is customary here.

Description

Not all women in developing nations feel the need to develop as does the status quo. Learning the ways she'll surely be needing in her live aboard these floating islands of Lake Titicaca, a young girl departs of the weaving and sewing duties for a playful roll in the totora reeds that keep her home afloat.
