Reed Boat Ride

The Uros people make their reed boats from the totora reeds that grow around Lake Titicaca. The boats, called balsa, vary in size from small fishing canoes to 30 meters long. While traditionally made entirely from totora reeds, today the Uros incorporate approximately 2000 plastic bottles into their reed boats.
