In 2013 it was the first time I visited Montessori school in Zurich, where I met Rachelle Olson who was a teacher there. Since then I kept in touch and I visited the school again one more time. This time and after pandemic I came back to Switzerland and luckily I had a great chance to visit the school again and we had 3 workshops. In 2013 Rachelle organized a book fair in school where kids could sell their used books to their friends, they also printed some of my photos, baked cookies and had a great events and at the end they donated that money to my project which was a big help.
Like always kids are more fascinated by my pictures and travel stories but this opens a window for me to talk to them about WE NEED TREES as well. The hope I feel while working with kids fuels my journey and help me to continue.

I have been in Brazil two weeks now. A very new culture, environment and very different food and climate with what I used to have.
A new adventure, but really adventure in many ways. I spent nearly all this time with Clause and his family in Alter Du Chao, where I could slowly melt into the culture and new environment.
in a few days I will start cycling through Amazon forest.
