Although the sun was scarce on our Copacabana Bolivia boat trip to the "Sun-Island", traveling to the place where, according to legend, Inca mythology began, it was impressive. The Inca Garcilaso de la Vega describes that on the sunny island, siblings Manqu Qhapaq and Mama Uqllu at the ritual stone Titiqaqa emerged from the waters of Lake Titicaca. They are considered Adam and Eve of the Inca culture.
