Peru, part 6 with photos

By Robyn Openshaw, MSW | Jan 13, 2010

I wrote earlier of a village we discovered with three people living there who are 110 to 120 years old. These are photos of one of the village elders, with the ancient Incan rings she found when she was a child on her hand.

The other photo is me with Kynet and Marco, whom I wrote about earlier. Marco is 4 years old and has cerebral palsy. Here’s my thought. If this mother in a third-world country, no recipes and no education, with a battered old blender and $200/mo. in income can feed her child a marvelous, whole-food diet . . . can we?

    Robyn — These pictures are fantastic! Thank you very much for sharing. I look forward to more pictures and updates if you have them. Sounds like a life-changing experience. Would love to hear from the other GSG readers as well who went on the trip with you.

    I am surprised by your visit to Perú, my country. Great work in teaching this kids how to get better nutrition. We have very nutritious native products. From potato to quinua. But traditional diets are very powerfull and dificult to change. In this case there are no parents to oppose the new recipies. I live in Lima. If I can be of help in your project please let me know. I would like to be an affilate in Lima Peru.
