A WEEKEND IN THE SUN ISLAND

Last weekend I had a wonderful trip to one of the most important places in Titicaca Lake, which is about 3840 metres above sea level. I never thought I was going to see such incredible sights of this Lake.
I decided to make a presentation with some of the pictures I took there and participate with this presentation in a contest.
I would like to invite to see this presentation and if you like it, there is an option to Vote for it.

beautiful!!

Thank you for sharing the history and images of Sun Island! I never realized how high up and absolutely huge Lake Titicaca is. How far is the lake from where you live? I live in Portland, Oregon in the United States which is a few hours drive from Crater Lake. The lake was formed when a volcano collapsed and then the crater filled up with water. Here's a picture:

Your photos make me want to travel and see so much of the world! They also remind me of the land and beauty of my home here Oregon!

Hello Lisa,

Thank you for your comment and your picture. It is impressive too.
To go to Sun Island, first I take a bus and travel about three hours up to Copacabana. Then, I have to take a boat a travel one hour and a half to arrive to Sun Island.
There are a lot of beautiful things in the worlds and thanks to internet we fortunately can know them.

Kind regards,
Cristina

Reminding me of sacred presence

Cristina,

I watched your video, very nice. I liked the narrative along with the photos. You are telling your story and the story of a ancient tradition in a modern way. Do you think this is a way that indigenous cultures will find a new flourishing?
You are making me think of many possibilities and openings.
