En Cauca, Colombia, pasandola chevere en comunidad!/In Cauca, Colombia, time well spent in community!

Papaya, anti-fascist graffiti, the Caribbean in 3D, caldo de papa y jugo de maracuya lunch, arequipe (de-lactocized!), coffee plants, a walk with young friends in Buena Vista (2 times), speaking of organic planters for the orchids in Vilachi, and the neighborhood there too!

I just spent an amazing month with friends in Indigenous and Afro communities in Cauca, Colombia. I learned tons, and saw how a different world, alive with connections between people, plants, the environment and healing thrives, if we work it.

Unfortunately the blog connection did not work. Among other things, I spent two hours on a blog there that disappeared, don’t count on the default save is the lesson, and I couldn’t upload pictures up from my kindle. De todos modos, I can now share some of those highlights (nothing like a desktop!) and those pictures. A big highlight was reconnecting with dear friends and comrades, and meeting new ones, quienes se estan apostando la vida to do awesome work. Another one was celebrating another birthday at my dear Rosalba’s, Nelson’s and Daniel’s place in Vilachi, with dear Buena Vista comrades. What a joy to share a second birthday as they had then celebrated me in 2011.

Chontaduro palms, centro de armonizacíón (Indigenous justice system of reparations), natural water swimming pool, cotton flower, roof top coffee bean dryer, chontaduro palm, chillin in da hammock, chontaduro fruit, save my life mosquito net/ palma chontaduro, harmony center (sistema de reparaciones del sistema de justicia Indígena), techo seca cafe, relajando, fruta chontadura, me salvo mi vida el proteje de sancudos.

Acabo de pasar un mes chevere con amigxs, en comunicades Indigenas e Afro en Cauca, Colombia.  Aprendí toneladas, y vi un mundo diferente, vivo con conexiones entre gente, plantas, el medio ambiente y la sanación que vive en el, si lo trabajamos.

Desafortunadamente, el blog no ando.  Entre otras cosas, gaste dos horas alla escribiendo un blog que desaparecio, o sea, no cuentes en que la computa te lo va automaticamente es la lección y no podia subir las fotos en mi kindle. Anyway, ahora puedo compartir esas experiencias (de mi computa de escritorio, y esa fotos. Un de las experiencias mas claves fue reconectarme con quieridos compas, conocer nuevxs, who are betting their lies para hacer trabajo bakano.Otra fue el celebrar otro cumpleaños (con dos tortas ricas!) en la casa de mi querida Rosalba, Nelson y Daniel con compas queridxs de Buena Vista. Que alegria me dio compartir una segunda celebración como la parecida con cual me festejaron en 2011.
