(not the one that the song is about)
that Copacabana is in Brazil
Copacabana is the main Bolivia town on the shore of Lake Titicaca, from where boats leave for Isla Del Sol, the sacred Inca island. Lake Titicaca is bordered by both Bolivia and Peru. The Bolivians like to say: "The Titti is the Bolivians and the Caca (poop) is the Peruvian side. " But, the actual meaning is actually Puma Rock. The Puma is a mountain lion/cougar and is actually a very special symbol to the ancient Incan's.
This is another picture by a beautiful yellow building in my hotel (not my room though) with my friend Suzanne
Isla del Sol (Island of the Sun) is an island in the southern part of Lake Titicaca.Geographically, the terrain is harsh; it is a rocky, hilly island. There are no motor vehicles or paved roads on the island. The main economic activity of the approximately 800 families on the island is farming, with fishing and tourism augmenting the subsistence economy.
There are over 80 ruins on the island. Most of these date to the Inca period circa the 15h century AD. Archaeologists have discovered evidence that people lived on the island as far back as the third millennium BCE. Many hills on the island contain agricultural terraces, which adapt steep and rocky terrain to agriculture.
My friend made fun of me because I was chasing the lambs around trying to pet them. But I love this picture so much because it truly demonstrates the beauty of this island. It is not tropical by any means, more temperate, but still very beautiful. It's such a breath of fresh air to see such simple lives, and to literally breath clean air. Simplicity can bring a lot of happiness for many people. It makes you stop and think about what you think are necessities and which are not. Also, I just loved seeing other ways of life, so may people live agrarian centered lives and it is a way of life that I will never fully understand, but enjoy learning about.
This picture is literally taken on top of the Isa Del Sol peak. I am on top of the world here and what a beautiful world we live in!!!
