Ailsa’s theme this week is ‘freedom’.  Here’s her link

Whilst pondering this theme, as it is indeed thought provoking, I remembered my visit to Lake Titicaca, back in 2012.

Freedom is this communities mantra.  They are free to fish anywhere and free to do as much or as little in a day as they choose.

Most importantly though, they are free to live on the lake wherever they please.  Their floating reed island can be moved on a whim, and how’s this for freedom; if you tire of living with your neighbours, you can simply cut away your part of the island and move!

Total freedom!
