Chachapoyas: Edge of jungle full of hidden gems

Chachapoyas is a small town in Amazonas also known for being a “ceja de la selva” which means an eyebrow/edge of the jungle. The town itself is very small, simple and very safe.

About 3 months ago, I got to know an amazing person, Prof. César Gutiérrez-Muñoz. He is a historian, an archivist, a traveller, a big lover of Peru. From the first meeting with him, when he told me some stories from his life, I knew that this will be the right person to make an interview with. He is “old enough” to tell me about Peru now and then, and what’s more, he is very friendly (he always brings me chocolate from his trips 😛 ), so I was hoping that he would agree with that. And he did. We did the interview about 3 weeks ago, we talked about Peru, culture, people, security, history, and here is the result – authentic view of Peru: Pokračovať v čítaní “Peru through the eyes of a Peruvian”
