The vacation was wonderful, yet back to real life on Taquile is the best.
We are still trading solar equipment for the excellent quality Taquileño textiles. Sometimes this gives us an opportunity to make friends with another lovely child.

We visit the Plaza and hike to the highest point on Taquile, the ceremonial site of Mulcina, almost every day.
Visits to family members and friends are a special kind of hike. Mercedez is 96 years old and has lived her live in this high altitude sun. She still walks and works a bit in her field and sometimes weaves.
