Behind The Things    2018

“Peru off the beaten path…all you need is a little of imagination, some planning and a spirit of adventure”

This catalogue is the result of my third time in Peru.                         

The land of the incas! I must say, an  amazing and unforgettable country. After arriving in Lima and resting for one day, I took the  bus ride to Trujillo city, where my girlfriend lives and whom wasn’t there at that time. So, I had to go an extra couple of days, honestly still a challenge, even though was my third time, in such a roads and mountains. Finally we got there! in that small town in the northern mountains at more than 3500 m.s.n.m.

And yes, after a few days of resting and a little plan, a very flexible plan I would say, we started our 7 weeks journey together beginning with 4 hours here, 8 there and 12 more, two days and so on. We got to Pucallpa where we continue by boat navigating in the Amazon, Ucayali and Marañon rivers with it’s Amazing natural resources that goes far deeper than just the animals, beautiful flora & fauna.

So, many rare plants of the Amazon not only create a unique natural environment, but have been used by ancient civilizations (and are still being used today) for their powerful medicinal properties.

And after being on the road, water for a while… We arrive in Iquitos a very popular place not only for it’s amazing Rainforest, shamanic medicine (Ayahuasca) .

We travel desert, mountains, jungle for many days on the road and by boat as well with other 300 people sleeping in hammocks. The country has 3 main regions according to the traditional method of dividing the country by altitude: coast, mountains and jungle, deserts and fertile valleys all far from each other and so  worthy to explore it.
