Photographer's Note

Taken on Isla Taquile, and island situated on Lake Titicaca. The men that inhabit this island wear woolen hats which they knit themselves, they wear red hats if they are single and red and white hats if they are married. The people on this island rarely marry non Taquile people. There are no vehichles here and not even bicyles, the island is about 6-7km long. Walking around the village I came accross these three girls and I just could not resist a photo.
You can reach the island by boat from Puno on the mainland and can stay overnight. You have to climb up hundreds of steep stairs to get to the top of the island where the village is.
