Reflection

My favorite quotes from “Why We Travel” (What a beautiful article!!!!!!)

“We travel, initially, to lose ourselves; and we travel, next, to find ourselves.”

“Travel is the best way we have of rescuing the humanity of places, and saving them from abstraction and ideology.”

I read the article on illegal mining as well as the article about Víctor Morales and how climate change has impacted his home. I found it really interesting how the environment of Peru is currently challenged by distinct stressors: both the immediate the human influence from mining, as well as climate change, which is of course the result of years of human influence. I am interested to see how the intersection of those two challenges will come to life when we are traveling in Peru.
