I can’t believe the 3 months i spent living in Peru has come to an end. i arrived home last friday exactly one week ago and i am slowly adjusting to being home again. I’m sorting and editing through some of my images i took while i was in Peru and reflecting on the last few weeks of my time there. I’ll be writing a lot more in the weeks to come about my experience along with adding fresh images, for now it’s important to share a few words about someone i recently met during the last two weeks in Peru.
Near the end of my time in Peru, i had the opportunity to meet Sonia Newhouse, owner of Cafe Living Heart, while i was staying in Ollantaytambo. Ollantaytambo is in the Sacred Valley where one can visit the Inca Terraces and get the train to Machu Picchu. It’s a friendly little town and with plenty to see all within walking distance. We stayed in Ollantaytambo for a couple of days and ate at Cafe Living Heart frequently during our stay. Not only was the food delicious and nutritious but Sonia Newhouse, founder and president of Living Heart Peru personally greeted us and thanked us for our support. Sonia is such an inspiration and truly passionate about Living Heart, www.livingheartperu.org. Eating at this wonderful uplifting cafe while we were there was such a joy knowing we were supporting such a worthy cause. The Cafe also has items for sale made by local families and they give 100% of the proceeds back to them. Donations can also be made online. Please visit the website to read more about Living Heart Peru. If you are planning a trip to the Sacred Valley, i hope you’ll pop in and order a good feed of pancakes, honestly they are to die for.
