Synopsis: Five hundred years ago, the civilization of Uros, seeking shelter from its enemies, fled to Lake Titicaca, near Puno, in Peru. They built lands out of Totora (a type of straw) in the middle of the water. As time passed, the supply of fish diminishes due to pollution. In order to preserve their floating communities on the water, the people of Uros were forced to turn to tourism. They no longer live as their ancestors did, but only by the image of their ancestors’ culture and mores.
