Local Aymara people of the Isla del Sol, Lake Titicaca, Bolivia, proudly display the Wiphala (Andean Indigenous flag) on the first day of the Aymara new year. The men and women of the island are very warm, welcoming people and greeted us with 'buenos dias' as we crossed paths near the sacred Incan ruins.

Location: Isla del Sol, Lake Titicaca, Bolivia
