Jenny Perkins trip to South America

Here are some photos of Jenny’s recent trip to South America
The homes on the floating island on Lake Titicaca have a floor of reeds at least a meter think. Walking on them feels a bit spongy but the floor is dry. Every year or so they cut more reeds & add to it. The root of these reeds floats like a cork.
Be at Macchu Pichu on the 21st of June to enjoy the winter solstice. The rising sun will shine thru a ‘window’ space in the wall forming a triangle of sunlight on the opposite wall.
Not a nail/glue is used on all these walls…just stone on stone – quite clever really and everything is lined up with the peaks, sun & moon.
