Pics and Footage of Opening Events for 2011 Vilcabamba Raw Food Gathering :)

WELL...what an eventful last 48 hours or so we've been experiencing here in Vilcabamba, where the 2011 Raw Food Gathering kicked off for a two-week run last Sunday...yesterday we enjoyed a lovely opening circle at the beautiful Madre Tierra resort, followed by an absolutely fabulous Opening Reception evening catered by the delightful Kirsten Gum of RawTrips.com and her hearty crew of helpers - over 100 revellers were there to celebrate the opening of this event, delighting in the delicious raw appetizers, soaking up the lush surroundings and mingling with friends old and new...beautiful times... :)

You can see some of my photos from the day here on Facebook:

Mr. M also uploaded a fun video today from the Opening Reception

On the subject of this current Raw Gathering, I want to give a big shout out to the lovely Claudia Morales in Chile, who has so kindly and generously volunteered herself as the online translator of all the info for the Gathering from English to Spanish (e.g. on the schedule page HERE, all of the Spanish translation is provided by Claudia - thanks :) Claudia and her boyfriend have also recently started their own blog, in Spanish, all about healthy living, with videos and articles - if you or anyone you know would love to connect more to raw/health info in Spanish, please feel free to check out her work at: www.lovinglife.cl/blog - thanks again, Claudia :)))
