The Basket-Smugglers


Lake Titicaca is the home to Los Basquitas, a ruthless band of basket-smugglers. This fabled band have been smuggling reed baskets from Bolivia to Peru for almost two-hundred years.

(Actually, there was a period in the 1960's when baskets were smuggled from Peru to Bolivia, thanks to a sudden revaluation of the peso.)

Bonus - No Good Deed Goes Un-Punished.

Bonus 2 - Films filmed in Iceland.
