The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes "Awww!" - from "On the road" by Jack Kerouac

Pachamama - the Mother Earth, the Inca goddess, a deity powerful enough to sustain life on earth.
Even today, in modern reality, in the heights of the Andes, people worship the Mother Earth.
Without Her, without someone above taking care of earth, life at 5,000m would not be possible.
And you can feel Mother Earth in the beauty you see everywhere you look, when your breath is taken away by the mesmerizing Peru and by the simplicity of life in its essence. (Photos and text by Leontina Chiricioiu)
