The lost city trek in the Sierra Nevada, Colombia 

The lost city, also known as “la cuidad perdida” in Spanish was a gruesome but eye opening 4 day hiking trek through the Sierra Nevada that ended up in a display of ancient ruins.
This trek was extraordinary. The landscapes as well as the different ingenious tribes we passed by were a highlight. Today, there are 4 main indigenous tribes that reside in the Sierra Nevada. Two tribes that we got to get to know better, have it be: playing soccer with the young long haired boys or giving sweets to the small girls in white dresses, were the Kogis and the Wiwa tribes.

These are two very distinct tribes do not often interact with anyone apart from their tribes. Both groups wear white clothes, women and kids usually dresses and men wear white shirts and pants.
Thanks to our awesome guides, Abraham and Tommy, our trekking group gained more information and knowledge about these ruins and different cultures.
It was 60 km worth of trails that lead from forested landscapes to jungle looking areas.
Can recommend this trip to anyone, one thing that is recommended is to travel light;)
Enjoy the pictures

Happy PRIDE🌈🌈🌈
The sailboat, Grateful has been traveling the waters since 2018. Duane sold his house in California and decided to buy a boat in Turgutreis, Turkey and head out through the Mediterranean. It was interesting sailing and speaking to him about the difficulty of traveling during lockdown, as it can be sometimes difficult to enter ports/marinas in certain locations. Here are some impressions of grateful out on the waters. ⛵️
In many cultures, cemeteries are sacred places that require specific conduct when people walk through them. They are regarded as places that welcome different identities, representing a certain culture. I present to you a graveyard surrounded by cow fields somewhere in Belgium, where WW2 veterans lie and those awaiting to join their loved ones in the family grave, have their name carved into the tombstone.
Over the summer, Budapest’s prestigious, 155 years old University of the Arts and Theatre (SZFE) was placed under the governance of a private foundation. It was another display of Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s “war on culture”. In other words, a Fidesz party clamp down on liberalism or even opposition sentiment. The “private foundation” has begun taking charge of the university by welcoming unelected board of trustees, who are directly funded by Fidesz.
It is all about finding the beauty in the mundane. Film developed of a lonely beach house in Caparica, Lisbon 💙
Philomena and her husband, Nuno own a small laundry shop in Alfama. They have a big washing machine that has been kicking for the last 25 years and gets the work done. They have suffered financial setbacks due to the last year and a half of slow business. The pandemic suprised Philomena because of the division she sees in her neighborhood. People seem divided and instead of keeping together and checking in on each other, neighbors show endless disdain and a lack of empathy. Since restrictions were lifted, and a slowly flourishing tourism is returning, money will flow into the neighborhood and she will see a change. “Let’s see, Alfama will have to pick itself up,” she positively says.
