On Day 2 of the tour, our guide took us to Isla Incahuasi, an island abnormally filled with cacti. Although I am not completely sure why a Bolivian rock band held a concert at Isla Incahuasi, I think it's because the Andean New Year is arriving. Elderly indigenous people held a ceremony and spoke a tongue that I couldn't understand. Afterward, dancing ensued and I tried coca leaf tea for the first time. It was quite an experience. Also, those things in the foreground are cacti.
