WE LEFT: Huajumar in the morning under light cloud, still excited about going to work on the farm despite the repeated delays. We knew extremely little about it - what work we'd be doing, how remote it was, how many people would be there - but the mystery made it more thrilling, and we were keen to have a new experience and learn some new things. We arrived in Yepachi at about 9:30am, grabbed some quick breakfast, went to the little community centre where a woman unlocked the door to the dusty computer room - looked at our emails and, sure enough, there was one from the farm, explaining that we probably wouldn't be able to get a lift and would instead need to hike out to the farm, some 25km away. The first 8km, the email said, would be easy to hitchhike, as it was along a well-used mining road. The rest we would need to walk.
