Wordless Wednesday

This is a picture from my third trip to Peru.

The first and second one I spent in Lima and in Huaraz.

Huaraz is in the Andes and the hotspot of adventure and mountain tourism in Peru.

It is an incredibly beautiful place but in many sense, much wealthier than Peru in general.

In Lima I visited the colonial center and slept in a not-well-to-do neighborhood that the taxi drivers were afraid.

But still, it really wasn't that poor.

The second time we went by car to the northern part of Peru that is mostly desert.

And poor.

It is different to drive around because you get to see things that you wouldn't see on foot, or traveling by bus, or if you were in a tourist group.

It is hard to get by if you don't have water.

The plants die without water, the animals die without water, and finally, the people die without water.

This is a house in one of the little villages in the skirts of the Andes in the Northern-Peru.

  The quote is to remember the people.

And every day try to make decisions that will ensure equality and better distribution of wealth in the world.

It may be little, but it is the best I can do.

And the least they deserve.


  1. Great quote, I really think this is one everyone should remember. Thank you

  2. All humans should have access to clean water, and be given the freedom to sustain themselves

  3. Morality needs to be really changed so that everyone will get an equal share of resources. We have enough resources, we have great technology to deliver them, but we do not have the good will of everyone to do so.
    I wish this will change in my life time.

  4. So beautiful, we are all the same, united by one blood. Blessings!

  5. As always another wonderful, inspiring post. Thank you for sharing.

  6. It's sad that some people don't have access to a quality life like the rest of us. Knwoin this, we must be thankful for what we have and do what we can to help those who are less fortunate.

  7. Such an inspirational post, thank you for sharing this today :)

  8. A very thoughtful post. There are some many living in such desperate situations. If we don't help them... Who will?

  9. Great quote and good reminder. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and experiences.

  10. Wow beautiful post :) Very thought provoking. The quote is one I think we can all live by, thanks for sharing :)

  11. Great reminder, especially since all Aussies are thinking about sacrifice this week with ANZAC Day.

  12. Yes, there should be better distribution of wealth so others can benefit of what resources their country has. We'll can poor people and communities in other parts of the world too especially remote areas. I worked part time in statistics office in my country before and I felt very sad about how my fellowmen were in struggle to make ends meet.

  13. This is really a great reminder, that the good you do shall follow you.

  14. I have never been to Peru before, but it kind of reminds me of my own country the Philippines. I am also interested in visiting Ecuador though ever since I watched Samantha Brown's show. Thanks for sharing this one.
