Lake Titicaca | International Space Station

U.S. astronaut Ricky Arnold: "The inviting azure waters of Lake Titicaca high atop the Andes of Peru and Bolivia. To the Incas, it was considered the birthplace of the sun. From the International Space Station, it looks like the birthplace of the purest shade of blue."

Lake Titicaca is a large, deep lake in the Andes on the border of Bolivia and Peru. By volume of water and by surface area, it is the largest lake in South America. (Source: Wikipedia)
