leave a comment »

treking1Great to read that Peru’s geographic landscape will be witnessing such a nice gesture for mentally disabled people in the UK.

Sara Burden, a woman native from Belper, United Kingdom, will be treking the Peruvian Andes in September 2009 to raise funds for the Mental Health Foundation, a

Burden states in the article:

“The trek is seven days across the Andes. We will trek for eight or nine hours a day and will train for 16 weeks.”

How can you support her? If you are in the UK, you might want to stop by at her art auction at “The Little Gallery” on Bridge Street from February 7 – 21.

Good luck on your treking adventure in Peru, and congratulations on such a nice gesture!

cameron1If you have MTV Canada or CW on your cable, don’t miss Cameron Diaz’s series of 4REAL Peru on December 4 airing at 4 am, 6:30 am, 9 am or 11:30 am Eastern Time.

And if you don’t, no worries. Just click here to watch the series on demand.

Cameron and Sol Guy travel to the Andes mountains of Peru where Puma Singona, a young medicine man, is keeping his people’s ancient knowledge and wisdom alive.

It is a great way to get an idea of the cultural immersion experience you can have when you visit the Peruvian Andes. You see how women weave their textiles with techniques that go back centuries, the perfect line up of stones one on top of the other to build the street in Cuzco, how music serves as a natural healer, and even Bungee jumping!
