2 PAK - the latest episodes of Barefoot Across the World filmed in Peru.

A set of two newest DVDs from the famous travel series by Wojciech Cejrowski "Barefoot Through the World"

Peru and the Incas .

Wojciech Cejrowski a member of The Explorers Club in New York and the Royal Geographical Society in London. He lives on a ranch in Arizona and on his farm in Poland. The writer, entrepreneur and anthropologist organizes expeditions to the primal tribes. In the documentary series "Barefoot through the world", he shows you around the exotic corners of the world with fantasy and humor. This time it "shows and explains" Peru.

Episodes:

1. Cuzo

"Barefoot through the world" new series. I will take you to Cuzco - the Holy City of the Incas. It is high in the Andes and you need to acclimatize - I will show you how to deal with altitude sickness; in Indian. What to eat here? Hmm… Peruvian cuisine is a bit WEIRD. The mass of rainbow flags fluttering over our heads can also be a big surprise for viewers.

2. Kok

Coca - in Peru it is a sacred plant. Its leaves contain cocaine and are used as a stimulant. Wojciech Cejrowski will take you to the coca plantation, show you how to cultivate this plant, and we will take part in the harvest. We will check the current purchase prices and find out what coca is used by the Peruvians. How did he do it so that they were not afraid of the camera? It is not known - he has a gift.

3. The Couscous school

After the conquest, Catholic missionaries arrived in Peru. The first churches were built. The building material was there, but where to get the paintings on the temple walls? Single plays came from Europe, and then they were copied in bands - this is how the Kuskene school of painting was created. Works to this day. Wojciech Cejrowski will take you to several studios, he will show you how pictures are created and he will explain how to age them to make them look identical to the original 500 years old.

4. Chocolate factory

The episode is not only for children. Wojciech Cejrowski made it with his grandmother in mind, who bought cocoa in "bricks" and made chocolate at home. First, we will see how cocoa is grown, harvested and dried. Then, packed in bags, it will go to the old factory. Here, "massaged" turns into chocolate - white, milk, bitter.

5. Peru from the rear

Wojciech Cejrowski leads where tourists do not come. What does Saturday look like in the provinces and who hangs on the street lamps? What do the locals drink and how to make a Peruvian drink? We will also learn that in Peru people vote for "bolków" and "booths".

6. You don't want to be there

Wojciech Cejrowski leads to the Peruvian Amazon. Shows and explains where to stay. Humidity and nothing dries up, and mosquitoes fly in flocks - what to do? And something else for fishermen - how to hunt the largest fish in the Amazon, weighing as much as a calf.

7. Driving license for WC

We will travel around the city a bit (in a way that we advise against tourists). We'll look here and there. We'll take care of some errands. We will meet local people. We'll make a deal. And most of all, we will learn about the unwritten rules of the road that are in force in Peru. Wojciech Cejrowski will also obtain a new driving license. He does it in every country and has a whole deck of them.

DVD Wojciech Cejrowski Barefoot through the world - Incas

Wojciech Cejrowski a member of The Explorers Club in New York and the Royal Geographical Society in London. He lives on a ranch in Arizona and on his farm in Poland. The writer, entrepreneur and anthropologist organizes expeditions to the primal tribes. In the documentary series "Barefoot through the world", he shows you around the exotic corners of the world with fantasy and humor. This time it "shows and explains" Peru.

Episodes:

1. Incas

Sacred Valley of the Incas. Wojciech Cejrowski will show you what was left of this powerful empire and explain how it functioned. We will look at the Inca fortress and find out what the everyday life of the Inca was like. WC "shows and explains" that after watching this episode, the students pass the semester after watching this episode.

2. Wall

The Inca walls remain intact to our times, despite earthquakes and the passage of centuries. Inca structures amaze contemporary civil engineers - we still do not know how they were built. Walls made of perfectly fitting stones and large rock blocks were built by a civilization that did not know the wheel, iron, or draft animals. Fascinating!

3. Lama

A lama is something like crossing a camel and a sheep. In the Incas, the lama was the only pack animal and supplier of wool for warm ponchos, caps and carpets. As unrefined as a goat in nutrition. Stubborn and mean like a donkey. It is impossible to ride it, it kicks, bites and spits as Mr. Cejrowski has seen many times.

4. Salt

A long time ago, salt was not a spice but the first preservative known to mankind. Nobody ever sprinkled it to eat - that would be a waste. The soup was getting salty because you were cooking dried salted meat.
And where did the Incas get salt from? Very valuable, accessible from one place high in the mountains - the kings' mine. It took a lot of effort to drain it from the water. Wojciech Cejrowski "shows and explains" HOW, because ... this work continues to this day.

5. Hush and honey

Red bags on sticks are waving in the streets of Peru. In Mexico it would be a sign that you can buy a hemlock here, in Peru a red bag means “hemlock” - you can drink here. What do they serve? Wojciech Cejrowski shows and explains how to make and drink chicha - the national drink of the Inca Indians. (And by the way, the WC missed the drink of Polish kings and nobility - mead. He missed, so he went to the mountains for honey from wild bees and ... flies.)

6. Guinea pig

A pigsty in Peru. There are pigs in the pigsty, but ... sea pigs. Simple breeding, and Mr. WC shows and explains that after 20 minutes you are able to open such a breeding farm in Poland.
Since guinea pigs are much smaller than piglets, most of the duties can be taken on by school children - just like in Peru. We will feed it, pet it and… eat it. (Because they're food pigs.)

7. Potato

Wojciech Cejrowski invites you to the homeland of the potato - to Peru. Potatoes changed civilization both there and in Poland during the times of kings - the poor began to eat their fill.
The Incas knew thousands of varieties. Some of them must be trodden down before eating. Preferably barefoot - like cabbage. This episode is in the "show and explain" style.
