We arrived in Lima late last night and then set out first thing this morning to visit a community just outside the city that is using innovative technologies to harvest fog for fresh water. We met many great people there and recorded some wonderful perspectives on education and sustainability. Tonight we’ll catch a flight to Pucallpa, from where we’ll journey into the Amazon Rainforest and meet with communities there.
