And last but not least my respect for nature and its beauty makes me passionate about living a less consume-oriented life and maintaining our biodiversity, which results in my love of the abundance of fresh fruits, veggies and other produce in Peru, which then ends in my kitchen where I enjoy cooking and baking.

Peru with all its beauty and riches, but also with all its flaws, is a very special, here and there even a magic place; and I’m thrilled to introduce you to it and give you an understanding of this amazing country as co-founder and editor in chief of Peru Telegraph.
