Reed Houses and Boats (Titicaca, Peru)

The Uru people living around Lake Titicaca (the highest navigable lake in the world) build their boats and houses out of reeds. Clusters of houses stand on floating rafts, which are also made of reeds.

  1. The Uros are the people who live in those houses which are made of reeds. Their houses are part of their rich tradition and culture, which certainly deserves to be preserved. They also use reed boats for fishing. This is so cool: a merger between National Geographic and traditional architecture. I'm amazed!
