Grandma Cooks Breakfast , Uros Floating Islands Of Titicaca

Grandma Cooks Breakfast , Uros Floating Islands Of Titicaca

Lake Titicaca is the world's highest lake navigable to large vessels, lying at 12,500 feet (3,810 m) above sea level in the Andes Mountains of South America, astride the border between Peru to the west and Bolivia to the east. Titicaca is the second largest lake of South America (after Maracaibo). The remnants of an ancient people, the Uru, still live on floating mats of dried totora (a reedlike papyrus that grows in dense brakes in the marshy shallows) on floatings islands of Uro which are about 17. From the totora, the Uru and other lake dwellers make their famed balsas--boats fashioned of bundles of dried reeds lashed together that resemble the crescent-shaped papyrus craft pictured on ancient Egyptian monuments.

It's just reflection from the bubbling oil, honestly I did not engage my PS skills at all this time around...

Hello Eldar. There is no doubt that what Grandma is cooking up will give you enormous powers, but will it improve your Photoshop Skills. I notice that your Culinary Grandma seems to have eaten something that is making her face glow red like a burning ember. Could she be the source of all evil power? Just curious. Michael.

The main thing is to not scatter cigarette-butts there!
