    Felicitaciones! Lo que estas haciendo es historico. Soy de Puno y vivo en USA. Recientemente viaje a Puno, me dio mucha pena ver como el lago esta siendo contaminado. El aporte tuyo es fabuloso. Me gustaria colaborar con libros para la biblioteca de Acora. Con quien tengo que comunicarme? Gracias y nuevamente felicitaciones!

    Hi Aymar,
    My husband, Dan, and I met you in Peru with Donna’s group recently. We talked with you about sharing your product with our local co-op once we returned home. We were at the Arcata Co-op this week and met with the store manager. She appreciated your work and was enthusiastic about marketing it in both the Arcata and Eureka Co-ops. She will, hopefully, be contacting you soon to order some items for sale in California. See you again soon we hope!

    Me gusta bastante tu trabajo, quisiera contactarte para unas ideas que tengo en mente, escribíme al mail porfa!
