Bus station art, Coro, Venezuela

We spent one year backpacking around the world between March the 15th 1999 and March the 15th 2000 with eight and a half months travelling around South America. The bus station at Coro was uniquely decorated although the buses that were running looked as if they were not much different to the parts hanging on the wall.

This is one of eight photographs that we made into a set of blank greeting cards. It was taken on an old Canon A1 35mm camera using slide film. The cards are available from our Etsy shop, https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/JunagarhMedia.

This is the list of photographs and the images are shown below:

Machu Picchu, Peru – the secret city

While in Peru we took the train from Cuzco to Aguas Calientes and from there we visited the amazing Inca city that the Spanish conquistadors never found. It was only rediscovered in the early 20th century. It is an amazing place, When we were there young children ran down, I think, faster than the bus did to wave and welcome us in the next hairpin turn. Surely, some very wasted sports talent there.

Mirrored Clouds, Lake Titicaca, Peru

The lake looked extremely serene from the small boat we travelled on from the town of Puno. Although the day started off quite warm and a sunny day, on the return with the sun sinking lower in the sky and the high altitude of the lake, it quickly cooled. Many passengers were not prepared for this change in temperature. At one point it seemed as if we would run out of fuel as well.

Mirrored Clouds – a trip on Lake Titicaca

This is a photo that we took while we were travelling around South America. We took one of the days trips out from Puno in Peru to see the islands on the lake. What starts off as a warm day can certainly catch some people out because at that altitude the temperature can drop quickly. It was to be the case on our return for some of the more lightly dressed people travelling on our little boat. What was a little unnerving was the fact that on the way back the engine stopped and it looked like it was due to not having enough fuel. It was all very Heath Robinson with the boat owner or employee messing around with a fuel hose in a plastic container being used as a fuel tank. Luckily there was enough at the bottom to restart what I seem to remember was a V8 engine and get us back to Puno. Spending the night floating around on an open back boat with a small cabin was not exactly something to look forward to. This was back in 1999 so forget the idea of , “has someone got reception?”, because nobody even had a phone. We forget how much technology and its distribution has changed in those intervening years.

The islands were very interesting. We visited the Uros floating reed islands which for someone like me and perhaps many others, having lived on solid ground and at ground level for all of my life did feel a little strange. We also visited a “real” island, that of Taquile that was reached after we moored, by a steep set of stairs in the rocks. Some found the climb arduous because they were not acclimatised to the altitude. It is an interesting society on the island in that men do all the knitting and we watched some of the locals watching a football match while many of the male onlookers did their knitting. Can you imagine that on the terraces of the Premier League clubs? Perhaps it would lead to calmer matches and less violence between the tribes of the football teams. It could also lead to a lot of local manufacture of home made garments and less consumption of fast fashion made by exploited third world labourers. Anything is possible, it is just what we are used, to however unlikely alternatives are likely to be.

We saw on Taquile the first of what are apparently now many solar panels. Quite rightly so the island community is getting access to electricity and all the useful technology such as fridge freezers. However, Taquile could be seen for a model of island Earth in that what is a sustainable level of population, energy use, tourism and development? Will it or even has it already got a luxury hotel because what is perceived as necessary is growth and development at any cost? We need to be answer these questions for both islands, Taquile and Earth.
