Boats Anyone?

Dr. Joyce Chen, Interplast Webster Fellow.

After a week of hard work operating and taking care of patients in La Paz, part of the team visited Copacabana, a quaint town on the shores of Lake Titicaca. Among the street vendors and markets, we discovered a delightful, elderly Bolivian woman crafting and selling reed boats of various sizes and character. She graciously allowed us to observe her deft hands at work, carefully and intricately designing the charming miniature boats that could actually float.
