Notice something different? That would be “The Khipu”, our new look blog and monthly newsletter. There’s always time for a fresh, new look.
Through The Khipu Blog, we will continue to inform you of the latest developments in culture and travel in Peru, Bolivia and the Galapagos Islands, with personal in-depth accounts of our journeys across the continent and throughout the world. Sent monthly, The Khipu Newsletter will round up all the latest from around the web to give you a digest of the most important stories covering our region.
It’s not by chance we chose to use the name “The Khipu”. A system of knotted and colour-coded cords, Khipus were used by pre-Columbian peoples in Peru to record information, store data and as an aide to recount stories. At the height of the Inca Empire, Khipus were carried by messengers throughout the Andes along the network of Inca Trails to transmit messages and deliver important communications. Seeing as we are delivering you news direct from the Andean region, we felt it a most fitting metaphor for our own, rather more modern communication channels!
