Many of the Uru people still live on these islands. They are manmade and have to constantly be rebuilt as the reeds rot.
The people should be called the reed people. They eat reeds, sleep on reeds, make everything out of reeds and spend their life on reeds. Though the island we visited was set up for tourists with many purchasing opportunities and rides in the traditional reed boats. But it was interesting none-the-less.
Walking on the islands was spongy and weird. I could get used to it. Fishing off the edge of your house.
They even had a school!
