I stayed in Midtown, a fast developing area. Only a few years ago it was consider a dangerous area. I was told by local that it was not recommended to go beyond the trainline.

Today is a safe area full of shopping mall, palm trees and luxury buildings.

Kantu

During a day trip into the Valle sagrada, i spent some time in Kantu (http://textilescusco.com/) a place where Alpaca wool is worked into traditional peruvian product. After an extensive explanation on the process, i was invited for lunch. It was the best meal during my whole stay in Peru. Thanks to Edzon and his whole family.

Taller de Arte in Aldea Yanapay

A few Photos from our “taller de Arte” in Aldea Yanapay school in Cusco (http://aldeayanapay.org/hello/).

During this time Raul produced a series of canvas developing the theme of the sacred symbols of the Inca tradition, helped by some of the kids. All the art will be available for sale soon and all the proceed will go to support the Aldea Yanapay project.

Raul33 Paiting Aldea Yanapay

Together with my friend artist Raul33 (www.raul33.com) and our friend Paolo we spent two weeks volunteering for Aldea Yanapay (http://aldeayanapay.org/hello/) a school for children based in Cusco, Peru. We worked with the kids to produce canvases which will be sold for charity and all the proceed will go to support the school. In this video Raul painting the facade of the building where the school is based. The Inka Cross or Chakana is a strong symbol of the old cultures of the Andes and is considered the most complete, holy, geometric design of the Inkas. This symbol is often found in old places and holy centers in the Andes in Peru and in Bolivia. The Chakana has had, and still has, a considerable meaning to the Inkas and it also represents many meanings in its design.

el Capullo de Barranco

During my short stay in Lima i planned to visit a flea market called La Feria de Barranco. Having arrived before opening time i walked around the district and found El Capullo market : https://www.facebook.com/elcapullodebarranco/. It was early morning and pretty much everything was still closed. I had a coffee with Modesto, who sells fruit and veg at the market. He’s been living in Lima for 40 years now and enjoy life in the city.
