Isla del Sol

The Island of the Sun is a baked and terraced mountain sitting in the glorious blue of Lake Titicaca. According to Inca legend, the Sun was born on the island, and the moon was born on nearby Isla Luna. We stayed a night on the evilly steep Island and began a running battle with a messy stomach bug that leapt between the four of us causing untold amounts of digestive system chaos.

Our boat has just passed trough the small gap in the background. You can see the captain steering with his foot.

This is the moon rising over The Island of the Moon
