How's it going friends?

We are very well, feeling inspired by Colombia, this beautiful and intense country! We have been involved with so many things since the last post, it doesn’t all fit here, but here’s a quick summary:

A couple of weeks of negotiation with the DIAN (Colombian Customs) for a renewed permission for Minhoca to travel in the country

A visit with our friend Felipe, who we met living at the Esalen community ( in California. We also hung out with Natalia Abelo, another dear friend from there also.


We visited the Caribbean Coast and the Sierra Nevada, and soaked in the ancestral knowledge of two indigenous groups, the Arhuacos and the Kogis

In a Kogi Village...


We've held several demonstrations of the Bike-machine...


A visit and workshop with EcoAldea Feliz...


A visit to Organic Farm Altamira...


A LOT OF seed exchanges...


And finally, most recently, our re-arrival in the Quindío region, where we have visited Pachamama Ecovillage, and hosted 2 events: Canto Al Agua March 22, and an Ecological Party at a local school in collaboration with our friends from Biciclando and the Tukay Foundation (we will write more soon). This week we are super busy with lots of visits in the area, and then we ride south toward the Universal Dance Peace Training in Atlantida Ecovillage... 

Add to that the edition of new videos (coming soon!), new audio projects (also coming soon!) and the traveling life, and there is lots going on, as always… we are trying to share as much of our learning as possible with you!

We will be bloggin more in depth about some of these events soon…!

Greetings from your ‘parces’ ☺ (as they say here in Colombia, meaning friends, partner)
Leti and Ryan
