Gilber in Peru


Gilber is 11 years old and lives in the Peruvian Andes. It is customary here to live in both your mother and father’s village. We will there for visit both places. We will follow Gilber in his daily activities, feeding his guinea pigs and taking the sheep and llamas out to pasture. But most importantly we will prepare for market day. He will help his mother dye wool and bake bread for this special day. After a long walk across the mountain we arrive at market 4000 feet meters above sea level. Here villagers meet to barter their goods. Gilber will look to barter two of his guinea pigs for something he has always wanted.
