FuFu Travel - Exploring Peru II

I took a tour package, Peruian Soles 70 (RM84, USD 25) visiting 2islands and staying with a local on Amantani Island for a night. It was raining in the morning. I gotta buy this raincoat for Peruian Soles 5 (RM6, USD1.80).

Peruian leek is a very important plant to the people. They cover the island with leek, build houses and boat wiht dried leeks and also eat leek. I was wondering how it taste like. But well after my first bite, i kept eating. Juicy.

The president of the island presented us how they built the floating island. ANd this is the final presentation. With leeks on top of the soil, houses, boat and people living on the island happily.

The floating island, well is very touristy. The kids and ladies would at first very friendly to you, showed you their houses/rooms, after that force you to buy their craft. Anyway i paid what i thought it was reasonable. Spent Peruian Soles 20 (RM24, USD7) for two small hanging cloths.

We didnt know that we gotta paid another Peruian Soles 8 (RM9.60, USD 3) for this boat ride. We were all brought to an island to take our boat to Amantani Island. We could actually go to the island from that floating island we visited.

This is the boat i mentioned. Very special. But Peruian Soles 8 is a bit expensive because the ride is very short.
