I’ve been back in La Paz for almost a week now, cooking my own food, sleeping in, and getting my body and brain back into the swing of things here. After two beautiful, busy months of travel in Colombia, Venezuela, and Washington, D.C., it feels good to be back in my own bed!
There is plenty more I would like to share from all those travels, and here in La Paz there have been numerous marches and demonstrations in the last few weeks, which I will try to share about at some point soon. For today I simply wanted to say hello and share a couple of items which may be of use or interest to some of you.
- The U.S. Congress is returning to discussions of the proposed Colombia Free Trade Agreement. Some good info and links to resources on Mamie and Richard’s blog. Educating yourself and others, and saying a prayer for the people of Colombia–especially the displaced and other victims of the internal conflict–would be a great way to celebrate the Days of Prayer and Action for Colombia this weekend and throughout the month of April.
- Thanks to the PC(USA) Food and Faith blog for sharing this booklet on food sovereignty: what it is and why it matters, in the words of people who are directly involved in the movement to ensure that all people have reliable access to the food they want and need to eat.
