A simple home

A simple home

At just under 4000 metres (13,000ft), Cullhuay is a tiny town in the Chillón Valley who’s population survives by agriculture and fishing.

Providing passers-through the opportunity to get something warm to drink, oh… a see a mummy discovered in an ancient burial site nearby, Cullhuay is otherwise as quiet (and as friendly) as an Andean town can get.

When we were there, a friendly local handed us a huge bunch of ruda, to wish us good luck on our trip up the cordillera.
