Unusual Solar Photos pt. 4

I picked this photo because I didn't think something like this would be possible. I found it on Amy Allcock's Flickr Photostream. Read her description:
While visiting the Floating Islands, I was really impressed how the Uros had used the resources available to them, mainly the abundant totora reed, to survive. At first I was surprised to see the solar panel, but given their their acute understanding of nature and the importance they placed on the sun as a deity, solar power seemed like a natural resource to harness. It's also a convenient way to power their TVs, which is pretty much the only electrical gadget they use.

The bottom line is...

If you can set up a solar panel here, you can set up a solar panel anywhere.
