¡Qué rico es! is a national campaign to promote responsible consumption in Ecuador. This video was done as part of this campaign in coordination with the Colectivo Nacional Agroecológico, EkoRural, and Groundswell International.
Last weekend I spent Saturday and Sunday hiking in Aigüestortes with a few friends and of course I carried my camera. Click on the photo below to see all the pictures from the weekend.
Way back in July Amanda and I spent 3 fun days with a crew of local models, the Muar team and the folks fromMonkee Genes working on the Monkee Genes Spring 2015 collection. If you don’t know Monkee Genes you should check them out. There motto is “no slave labour, no child labour, no blood, no sweat, no tears.” In fact they are so eco-friendly that they are PETA approved. On top of that they are super fashionable and comfy, so much so I am wearing a pair now.

The video we are currently working on for EkoRural connected us with a couple who do a radio program about local food and nutrition of Ecuador. After we finished interviewing them for the video they asked Amanda to be a guest on their program and talk about typical Catalan food. This morning they came out to the farm where we are staying and did an hour long live program with Amanda cooking and talking about home. As you can see she had a great time and I am sure there was no shortage of conversation!
The adventure in Ecuador continues but it has been hard to sit down and get things done because it has been so fun. In my last post we were at Un Poco Del Choco after finishing up a video for another NGO call Las Tolas. Since that point we have finished shooting our video with Un Poco Del Choco, spent time hanging out and traveling with friends and made a video for an Indiegogo campaign about an interesting project at an organic farm. We are now back near Quito working with EkoRural for a few days before we head to the Galapagos. We have been planning and shooting all of these videos but nothing has been edited. That means we are going to be super busy once we get back to Barcelona.
We have left El Refugio de Intag and are now deep in a mountain rainforest with another organisation called Un Poco del Choco. Although we had internet in Intag I was not very good about posting. We spent most of our time there enjoying the nature and being led on great expeditions to see endangered Eagles and the like with our friend and guide Peter.
