When we travel, we come in contact. We bless and heal people, nature and Mother Earth.
Traditionally, on each of our journeys, we invite people to a festive meal to encounter beyond cultures, religions and nationalities, The Peace Dinner!
When we travel, we go to encounter on par with the local people and appreciate them.
Peace touches people's hearts and spreads.
Singing and full of rhythm we started our walk. All of us at once felt the origin african way of life.
From of all communities we had visited, we invited Kogis to the PEACE DINNER
It took several days of preparation and a meeting in advance with one of the three Kogi-Mamas so that this encounter could take place.
The Seiviaka-community lives in a village further above in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta.
The drive to the Tungueka´s Kogi-village passes off over scree, through water and narrow roads.
With respect and in dignity we stand at the entrance of the village which is marked in the earth by a big heart-shaped stone.
A further experience took place when we visited a school on the banks of the Rio Negro.
On the morning of the Good Friday we went by boat to the Tuyuka an indigenous people near Manaus.
The holiest Hindu holiday, the Balinese New Year festival, called Nyepi Day, fell exactly in the time of our trip to Bali. Nyepi is the Balinese day of silence and meditation.
