The styles in Peru of the Choiltas and Solitarios are incredible. Most men wear a varation of this hat but I really love the way they use the buttons on some of them. Also everyone carries things on their backs like this, usually in beautifully colored blankets… so simple,so functional and it looks so cozey for the children.

This is where I’ve been living for the last 3 months. Situated between 2 coastal cities in Chile, Blowing in the Wind is an eco community full of interesting, everyday Chileans and great ideas. The houses are constructed out of mud, the gardens are full of vegetables and everynight there’s  good time to be had with vegetarian BBQ’s, live music, and homemade wine and beer. “The answer my friend is blowing in the wind”
