From of all communities we had visited, we invited Kogis to the PEACE DINNER – our PEACE MEAL in the garden of our finca.
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.
We as well expressed our openness and appreciation towards all religions by visiting a Hindu temple ceremony.
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.
