…the weather in Lima has changed unnoticed. The heat came down, so the air feels fresh and smells just like spring in Europe. I love spring. It is exciting and bothering, always makes me feel younger than I am at the moment. And even though it is autumn in Peru, the smell and the light here wakes up a very personal spring inside me! And spring is always about love…

As I promised more of Callao is coming…
This is just one evening in pictures. I finally managed to catch a tipical Callao men´s habit, so here it comes: in the daylight in front of audience just one more peruvian man with his pants down… right there in the street…
But sometimes Callao gives me some great feelings… When the sun goes down with the rythms of passionate peruvian cumbia, I get as free and happy as Callao woman can possibly be…

I love dancing! I love when people have fun dancing and enjoy it! So I enjoyed a lot watching this go-go dancer going wild! Common, she´s hot!

I believe only a dedicated photographer knows how it feels like to lose personal works. No matter if they were good or not, it makes you feel like you made a step back erasing those pictures… It´s not what you do on purpose. And even though I know there is a lot in front of me, I still turn my head back to the day when our computer broke down and we lost lots of information, including some of my photos, which (our mistake) we didn´t back up…
Still I´d like to share some of those photos with you. I likely uploaded them on facebook, so the whole experience of peruvian Asia (one beautiful place) is now kept only in copies. Anyway here it comes.
Beach, ocean, sun… If you once get a chance to come to here, just do it!

Callao downtown is a grey and a little scary place. The streets are noisy, the people are weird. Here you might get robbed in the daylight, and it´s definitely not the place you want to visit at night. You can easily get lost among once great architectural constractions which are now destroyed and forgotten. The place stinks.
Therefor it was a special enjoyment for me to see the school kids demonstration as it represented the children´s interest in their own future! Hopfully one day Callao will become a better place, because those kids might do a better job than their parents…

Here comes the first porsion of my pictures of Callao, where I live at the moment with my husband. Though I still hate this place, I´m kind of getting used to it. Besides here we have some projects going on, so… You´ll see more of Callao on this blog!
So far I´d like to share with you my first, not very close yet, mercado (market) experience. So here we go!!

It´s obvious that we live every day. That´s how we do it: wake up and crawl out of the dream world, get out of bed, take a cup of coffee and follow “personal schedule” whatever it is- studies, work, hobby, meeting people, shopping, cocking, “bath-rooming”, watching TV, dancing and so on…
But there are those other moments of our lives when we feel different… more alive… maybe alive to extreems… Then and there we wake up from the living dream and once living for real. Doesn´t matter how and what we feel then, it´s not about the pain or pleasure we might feel at the moment, it´s just about the very moment itself, when we see with open eyes, breath with full lungs, when the coffee tastes better then ever…
One of these moments I LIVED today, while sitting in the park with Pepo (my husband) and Negrita (the street dog we take care of)… Nothing special happened this evening. But the light was bright, air fresh, even a little cold and I could clearly hear the sound of the swing coming from the playground, where a school girl seemed to be living the moment too…
All that reminded me of another day and another living experience, which for some reason was kept somewhere in my memory, and which I likely managed to catch “on tape”.

The pictures where taken 2 (or more?) years ago in Norway.
The same people, the same feeling, just different places…
Wish to everyone to feel THAT ALIVE more often! 🙂
