What this kid learned in Peru…


Traveling to Peru was one of the most important experiences of my life.

It was there where I first saw the intense poverty present in the Peruvian mountainside.

It was there I met strangers who would gently remind me of the path I should be on in my life.

It was there I saw how the pain and the trauma of major historical events can propagate through incredible amounts of time.

It is there I felt resentment and guilt for being born into privilege.

It is there I saw the tallest snow-capped mountains, the bubbling rivers, and the starriest skies.

It is there I was reminded of the wisdom the ancients held.

It is there I felt most alive.

For $25 bucks a day, you can rent a motorcycle in Cusco and take it through the Peruvian Mountains. Absolutely amazing.

I highly recommend a trip to this lovely place.

It has so much to offer you. and I say that even without having traveled to Lima, Arequipa, Huacachina, Manu, or many other allegedly wonderful Peruvian destinations.

Traveling always rewards my mind, body, and soul, and this trip was no exception. 

Never stop learning, and never stop traveling!

  1. Andre, de nuevo digo que tus fotos están lindisimas, me traen a la memoria pasajes de mi linda Colombia; tambien me gusta saber que el ver la pobreza de estos paises te hace ser más agradecido por todo lo que la vida te ha brindado.
