El Jardin de la Paz, Peru Part One

August 2016,  I can’t believe this was six months ago!  So much has happened since then.  I spent 5 weeks here in the jungle at  El Jardin de la Paz (or The Garden of Peace) in the Peruvian Upper Amazon.  Participated in a 14 day dieta and then stayed to do my 30 day post dieta at the Garden while spending time with my beautiful friend Lara, her partner Ashley as well as some other wonderful people.  Karla and Tristin also live here at the Garden and are pictured in these images.  Unfortunately during this time I was bitten by a mosquito with West Nile Virus and I spent the last three weeks fairly sick.    Besides being ill, I had many lovely moment in those last three weeks and I took these photographs for the Garden to use on their website and for advertising.  I also took images with my medium format camera which I’ll eventually show over at @katevanderdrift.
