San Miguel’s Children

It was imposible for us to leave Chiapas before saying goodbye to San Miguel’s children. Here are some views of the happy life we enjoy at the Ejido. Even when we had some tears saying good bye we’re sure that as always we’ll see each other again. Eternal grateful to Martin, Crucite, the Chuchu and all Ortiz family for let us be one of them. And of course to the children that were (and still are) our inspiration for this travel. See you when we come back from Alaska!

KM 1: Inspiration

There is nothing better than living your dream by sharing the dream of others. Here are a few photos showing an afternoon of inspiration. We give our warmest thanks to everyone at SOS Children’s Villages in Comitán, Chiapas, for welcoming us into their home. We hope that these pictures inspire you to help them.  We surely were inspired by everyone present.  Children need true friends; they don’t need to hear false promises like those the politicians keep making during their campaigns and never actually keep once they are in power…

Little circus in Cuba

La Beba and El Barbón had the opportunity to share their experience in aerial silks with the children of Casa de la Cultura 10 de Octubre (Arts Center “October 10”), in Lawton, Havana. In the circus school, several professional trainers work in different areas and the children seemed to be absorbing their knowledge and wide experience with great enthusiasm. We would like to thank the cultural promoters, specially Carlos Borbón, for letting us enjoy the smiles while playing, juggling, making funny faces, monkeying around and learning.

The Ejido

The tin roofs appearing in the vegetation announce our next stop. We are at km 21, right in the middle of a dangerous curve. “Brakes function all right?” asks El Ruco before repeating the story of the van that ended up in the river. The news run like gunpowder and children cling around Adelita. On the stove, the soup is patiently heating. Tortillas, beans and chile are always at the ready. It’s just another day in San Miguel, our not-so-secret little hideaway.

Adelita

Let us introduce you to Adelita, the stoic Empress of the roads. Her 1977 body lived through more than thirty thousand kilometers (18.640 miles) under our care and keeps asking for more! This gallery honors our faithful companion and those who shared with us memorable moments. Now, she is about to cross borders throughout the continent. Your labor and ideas are most welcome. Our next gallery will be dedicated to those who doubted her.
