  The Houses of Titikaka
by Orkaena

As I told you about boats in my previous tip, the same is about houses.
They live in houses with a very singular design, the techinques and construction materials are the same from a thousand years ago, and they are very appropriated for this environment end the extreme temperature changes.
Fresh in summer under the burning sun of a thin atmosphere, and warm in winter because the low temp at more than 4.000 meters a.s.l..
Shapes, shadows and colors catch your mind, strange and beautiful.
