Adam in Bolivia
Bolivia is not actually in your backyard.... LOL so, hopefully I will score my badge for this entry :)

‘Isla del sol’ Island of the sun.
Lake Titicaca is a lake located on the border of Peru and
Bolivia. It sits 3,811 m (12,500 ft) above sea level, making it
the highest commercially navigable lake in the world
Island of the sun is situated on the Bolivian side of the lake
with regular boat links to the Bolivian town of Copacabana,
Isla del Sol ("Island of the sun") is one of the lake's largest
islands. In terms of geography, the terrain is harsh; it is a
rocky, hilly island. There are no motor vehicles or paved
roads on the island.
There are over 180 ruins on the island. Most of these date to
the Inca period circa the 15th century AD. Many hills on the
island contain agricultural terraces, which adapt steep and
rocky terrain to agriculture.
Adam was in South America from Dec 2010 til Feb 2011
