This is how we live in the tropics of Perú

Put on the visualisation glasses and come with us to the tropical mountains of southern Perú... or just have a look at these beautiful pictures of our hometown and the region around Machu Picchu.

Where an everlasting summer covers us in parrot sounds and views onto the broccoli like wooded hills.
We hear the river, coming from ice mountains on its way to the Amazon.

JackfruitJackfruitAs the only two white people here, we have been quite a surprise to the little tropical village, not to far away from famous Machu Picchu.
We live with our friend Ivan. A magnificant soul, who has been a student of the Q'eros (the last nation of the Inka) and is now working here for the townhall, reforesting the area. He and his team have been planting 5 million trees so far.
We are helping him with some of his projects, getting a room to sleep for this and are also working a lot on HappyGaia and our project of a selfsufficient ecovillage.

Due to the fact that we are close to the equator, all year round the sun tickles our toes at 5:30 in the morning and goes to sleep behind the hill at around 6:30 in the evening.
I start the day crawling from our thin matress on the flor, looking into our banana cartons what juicy fruit it will be for breakfast. We often choose oranges or pineapple but lately we are bathing in Jackfruit. $1.50 a piece.. A day goes like this: eating, dancing, sleeping, also for the animals <3

When the sky has some clouds to cover the heat of the sun, we love to move a bit more. Dance on the roof terrace or visit the sourrounding fincas of our neighbours.

It's an easy life and we just love this climate-jewel, not to hot, not to wet, not to cold. It's green and lush and sweet.
You can make very good friends here, we feel unimaginable safe and have a loving athmosphere around us.

So far we had visitors from family and friends three times. They really made it into the nothingness to see us, and they have been blown away from the energy here, too.

Sometimes the houses in the small towns are not looking so nice like in Hawaii or so, but the peoples' hearts, the nature, the weather.. Just everyting is simply beautiful.

We are home.

With every picture we send you the warmth, the fresh air and the joy of life. To all the beings around the world, blessings to your woods, your valleys, your coasts, your fields and hearts.

Kisses, Can and Jen
