QUECHUA: SIMPLE, AUTHENTIC

(Version française plus bas)

In the Quechua village of Nisag near Alausi, life is simple and authentic. Villagers get up at 4.00 am and spend the day in the fields to be back home at 5.00 pm. The rule of thumb is quite simple here: you grow food to eat, and you eat when you have food.

QUECHUA: SIMPLE ET AUTHENTIQUE

A Nisag, un village quechua près d’Alausi, la vie est simple et authentique. Les villageois se lèvent à 4 h et passent la journée dans les champs pour revenir chez eux à 17h. La règle d’or, c’est de cultiver pour manger, et de manger quand il y a de quoi.
