In the bottom picture, most fishermen use traditional sailboats to put out seines to catch fish, mainly trucha, trout, which was introduced in the 1930's, perjerry, kingfish, and a tiny fish, ispi, which is fried and battered and eaten as finger food.
In the second picture from the bottom, a lady is knitting, I think. I wish I could have gotten a better picture of the handiwork, but as I have said before, it is challenging enough to shoot close-ups of women.
In the second picture from the top is another picture of the renowned boat builder, I introduced in yesterday's blog. Here he poses in front of a small boat he has just completed built entirely of reeds which his grandson plans to use out in the lake for fun.
The top picture is a lady weaving a traditional shawl or light blanket. I don't know where she gets the yarn and I am totally ignorant about the process, except that there is a lady on the other side doing something as well.
Tomorrow I travel to La Paz where I will stay for three days before leaving for the orphanage in Cochabamba. The big city, I know already, will be an experience of coping with chaos. I'll send you some shots.
