Bravest men of all

It is called "Danza de los Voladores" (dance of the flyers). Wikipedia says that "it is an ancient Mesoamerican ritual, which consists of dance and the climbing of a 30 meter pole from which four of the five participants then launch themselves tied with ropes to descend to the ground. The fifth remains on top of the pole, dancing and playing a flute and drum. According to one myth, the ritual was created to ask the gods to end a severe drought."









The center of the world

Being one of the most populated cities in the world, Mexico City feels like the center of the world. Yet, somehow, it allows intimacy between its locals and guests alike. It is a truly magical city that I would love to live in someday.

Following the footsteps of the Incas

Two weeks in Peru... an incredible trip ranging from tasting the most amazing seafood in Lima to hiking up to 16,000ft to get to Machu Picchu, enjoying the most incredible views of valleys above the clouds and meeting wonderful people along the way. Peru is definitely one of the most beautiful places on Earth.
