Titicaca - Raza Ecuador(Album"Spirit") [14:25]
Lake Titicaca; is a lake located in the Andes on the border of Peru and Bolivia. It sits 3811 m (12500 ft) above sea level, making it the highest commercially navigable lake in the world. By volume of water, it is also the largest lake in South America Lake Maracaibo has a larger surface area, but it is often disregarded because it is directly connected to the sea. The origin of the name Titicaca is unknown. It has been translated as "Rock Puma," as local communities have traditionally interpreted the shape of the lake to be that of a puma hunting a rabbit. "Titicaca" combines words from the local languages Quechua and Aymara. The word is also translated as "Crag of Lead." Locally, the lake goes by several names. Because the southeast quarter of the lake is separate from the main body (connected only by the Strait of Tiquina), the Bolivians call it Lago Huiñaymarca (Quechua: Wiñay Marka) and the larger part Lago Chucuito. In Peru, these smaller and larger parts are referred to as Lago Pequeño and Lago Grande, respectively. The cold sources and winds over the lake give it an average surface temperature of 10 to 14 °C (50 to 57 °F). In the winter (June--September), mixing occurs with the deeper waters, which are always between 10 to 11 °C (50 to 52 °F) Titicaca is notable for a population of people who live on the Uros, a group of 44 or so artificial islands made of floating reeds (totora, a reed that abounds in the shallows of the lake).

South America Trip [09:22]
In July 2009, Stephen Kitchener and Gareth Watts arrived in Ecuador to begin a 5 month jaunt around South America. Travelling by bus, train, cargo ship, bike and foot, their route had taken them into the Amazon rainforest, across the Atacama desert of northern Chile, the salt flats of Bolivia and to the southernmost tip of Patagonia, with several crossings of the Andes and visits to some of the world's largest metropolises. By the time they left Rio de Janeiro in December, Gareth had shaved off the world's worst beard, Steve had been bitten by a dog, and they had collectively consumed more coca, Inca Cola, steak, alfajores, guinea pig, empanadas, reggaeton and catchphrases than is healthy. It was the best of times, it was the blurst of times.
