In celebration of EARTH DAY 33 people joined me on a 6K hike to raise awareness of Global Water Quality and to raise money to purchase water tanks in Kenya. Ending in the Llaquepata community we also disributed 1,500 kilos of food & supplies to 80 families who were affected by the recent floods.1500 kilos of rice, pasta, sugar & cooking oil which we divided into sacks for 80 families.We drove out to the Sacred Valley and hiked (some ran!!) 6km from the main road up the mountain to the village of Llaquepata. Others visited with and purchased textiles from the 15 women weavers from the village. The community put on a show with traditional dancing…the best one being where the women whipped the men with their woven belts & the men retaliate by pinching their butts! Passing around the Chicha (fermeneted corn beer). At least 33 pairs of lips touched that cup! An offering to Pachamama (mother earth) and to the Apus (spirits of the mountains). Our new friend Carl, a Swedish traveller with G Adventures, opening a bottle of champagne that we awarded him for being the fastest runner in the race!
