Despidiendo el Altiplano con graffitis

Estamos en el ultimo tramo del Altiplano de Peru ya camino a las playas del norte. Nos gustaría despedir este paisaje con algunos de los mensajes que encontramos en pueblos muy chicos y muy aislados. Aquí también la gente se expresa con graffitis y aquellos que nos llamaron la atención los pusimos en el video. Cabe decir que el mensaje de alfabetización lo encontramos en cada pueblo que atravesamos , incluyo en aquellos con 4 o 5 casitas , lo cual pensamos que es muy bueno. También nos llamo la atencion la campaña en favor del desarrollo de la mujer y este video es en honor a las mujeres andinas y el fomento de alfabetización en estas tierras del altiplano.

Farewell Altiplano through Graffiti
We´re in our last stage of the Peruvian Altiplano as we change it for the northern beaches. We would like to depart from this wonderful land with a few messages that we came across in some of the very small and isolated villages. Even here the common people express themselves and their feeling through graffiti. Those which we found interesting we photographed.   One message which we saw in almost every village, even those which consisted of only 4 or 5 houses, was to combat illiteracy throughout the community. It was also interesting to see the strong support in the personal developing of women throughout the Andean region. This video is in honour of all the women of the Andes and the fight against illiteracy throughout the highlands of Peru.

As the graffiti is obviously in Spanish we have translated them for you below. They are in order as you see them in the video.

1. Acolla soon free of illiteracy

2. People who care for people  (Health Center Huarricolla)

3. The change Peru needs is a real woman

4. A women with skills

The last photo simply says, ¨We are Peru¨

      Hi Clive,

      And there everywhere mate. They put roads where we wouldn’t dream of in Australia.

      Not a bad idea about the midlife crisis tours. Will have to use the older bikes though.

      Cheers

      Glad your enjoying the video’s Thordur.

      The people we have met during this journey may live very modest and simple lives, but they have all been very welcoming, warm and generous towards us.
