Once upon a time a lake


This is a view from Puno’s bay. Those ships were built in England, taken in pieces using donkeys and assembled in the highest (navigable) lake in the world: the Titicaca. Funny (or sadly?), because we have thousand of years building ships, we navigated to Oceania and Antarctica.

They were two ships, Ollanta and Manco Capac, (Capac is a form misspelled of Qhapaq).

I had curiosity to see the port at night, but there was empty; in a certain way is like go to a museum to see objects from the past: there is no life.

BTW in the sky is, if I’m not wrong dear reader, the Jach’a Qhana (what you probably name Southern Cross), four brilliant stars in the middle top.
