Stephen and Lynda Joyce

Stephen and Lynda Joyce recently toured Peru visiting Lima, Cusco, the Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu and Punta. They sampled local cuisines including alpaca and ceviche. On the floating islands of Urus in Lake Titicaca, the highest navigable lake in the world (pictured), the Joyces learned how to weave reeds into a spongy, floating platform. The island they visited is shared by six families and has solar power, a soccer pitch and a volley ball court. No basketball, though—the straw of the island does not allow the ball to bounce.
