Pro-Ecuador Newsletter: Chicha--Check Out the Ingredients Before You Drink It. Peguche Weavers, Recording the Past in Colorful Textiles and New Real Estate Tour date:  February 20, 21, 22, 2011

December 5, 2010


Ecuador Culture: Chicha. I thought some of the local home-brews were hard to swallow until I read this story about a North American’s visit to the Shuar Indians in the Amazon jungle. Read his amusing and somewhat awful account of attempting to be polite in Ecuadorian jungle society.

Machu Picchu Tour: Sign-up date extended two more weeks!  We need a few more participants in order for the tour to make, so we are extending the sign-up deadline until midnight, December 15, 2011.

One of our tour participants is a single female who would like to share a room with another traveler to avoid the single supplement.  Let us know if you are interested and we will connect you.

Machu Picchu, Peru, is absolutely one of our favorite places on earth. Our pilgrimage will take place April 15-25, 2011, and includes Cusco, the Sacred Valley and Lake Titicaca. See the tour itinerary on the tour webpage for details.

Don’t miss this opportunity to experience the magic of Machu Picchu and Lake Titicaca.

Peguche Weavers: Still crafting their fine textiles in the same manner for centuries, these weavers card, spin, dye and weave sheep and alpaca wool into beautiful, durable hand-made art.

A Visit to the Peguche Weavers:  Our tour participants enjoyed a visit to several of the Peguche weaving co-ops.  A weaver demonstrated her craft for us.
