Passenger: Cocachacra

Subtle and imperfect mirror...

subtle and imperfect mirror…

In middle of the highway that links Arequipa city to Ilo city there is a place called Cocachacra. It’s closer to the sea and it’s a little city whose main activity is agriculture. I think I’ve never poot foot in the ground, as I seen from the car, and being the sea so close actually I am attracted more to the latter. This are photographs from a car in movement…

The farmers were preparing the field for new crops… I don’t know if it’s the better way to do it, I mean… burning.

  1. cette façon de cultiver existe depuis très longtemps, en français, on dit: culture sur brûlis
    merci pour ce beau reportage, francis

  2. A nice series, Francis. I think it’s a visit worth. But I would prefere a day without burning fields.
    Have a good time,

  3. Interesting details about the place, technical even, while everything looks so warm and velvety. The first picture feels like looking out of the window and seeing soft-hued waves.. in rich cushy greens and creamy yellow, against blurry brown and blue. : )

    1. I totally agree with you Julie. It would be better to try to avoid old techniques that are surpased by knowledge, and that would be for environment and health as well.
