Las fiestas en la comunidad de Huilloc antes duraban 8 días según lo que me comentó Valentín, un vecino amigo. Ahora duran solo 3. Los desfiles y bailes llenan de jolgorio el aire que se respira. El alcohol hace de las suyas, cervezas y algo impronunciable van metamorfoseando hasta al más Candido. Las mujeres toman su chelita también.
So, in thinking this week about being thankful for things in my life, I wanted to put up a project I shot in 2012. I was in Peru covering the Inti Raymi festival in Cusco and hiked the Inca Trail as well. It was on this trip that I realized I wanted to be a photographer. I self published a book for Kickstarter about this project using @blurbbooks which you can find a link to in my bio. Enjoy!
A number of people have asked me today if I was ready to come back. The simple answer is “no”. Not because I needed to do more or because I felt like the time away was not long enough. It is the exact opposite. I’m not ready to come back because of precisely how much I did do. How much I saw. How much I felt. There is a deep need inside me to truly to digest it. To acknowledge it. To master the takeaways from it. That takes time. They say you leave your heart in San Francisco, but I think my heart is in Peru right now.
