"What kind of times are they, when a talk about trees is almost a crime because it implies silence about so many horrors?" Bertolt Brecht

House and Garden of H. E.
Near Salas (Lambayeque), in the middle of the dry forest, lives a german architect who has dedicated 7 years to raise sheep, but then, due to a prolonged drought, saw himself forced to sell them. He also runs a small but exclusive hostel. It's an ideal place to stay for bird watchers and the like. On these pictures one might not see, how urgent the water ptoblem is. His place is near the riverbed, where humidity has been retained over the years of drought and he and his partner do what they can with water drawn from a well, to not let the place dry out completly.
