A young boy plays on Lake Titicaca's Isla Taquile as a thunderstorm rolls in.

I snapped this photo of a young boy in traditional local dress during our home-stay on Lake Titicaca’s Isla Taquile. He was playing with several other children in the island’s Plaza de Armas, or main square. The children took turns climbing to the roof of this building and dropping things down to the others below. Their game was cut short, however, when a dramatic storm rolled in across the lake and forced everyone inside.
