(February - April 1998)

I only had a very simple point-and-shoot camera without zoom options.
Three months in Peru, one of which working as English teachers in Puno.
Floating reed islands of the Uros people in Lake Titicaca (+3800m). The reed rots away from the bottom and is
replenished from the top. It feels like walking on a waterbed!
