What will you do?
You will learn how to make the famous Andean bricks, an ancestral technique that survives to this day. We will begin by making an offering to the earth and the apus, a ritual before a good day’s work. With a spectacular view of the valley, we will teach you how to make adobe blocks. We will dig the earth, mix the water with the ichu and pour the mixture into molds. After the work we will enjoy a delicious local lunch with the people of the community.
