This is a great info-graphic from the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations. You´re welcome. It´s a bit weird how it cut things off, so definitely check it out on the FAO webpage if you are interested.

From my un-exotic desk in Atlanta...

Lately I´ve been playing with the idea of re-entering the world of public journaling. Though I´m no longer walking through the mountains (the title of this blog), I feel like I am still on the same journey that I began in Peru. My three years in Musho raised a lot of questions for me about how the world works, how the world should works, why malnutrition is so insidious if it´s relatively simple to prevent...
So I applied to graduate school. After a few nail-biting months, I was accepted. Now in my second month, I´ve learned more questions than answers. It is thrilling and terrifying to realize how many questions you can ask to which NO ONE knows the answer. Or, answers that seem obvious yet that are completely ignored in the general public. Why? Why doesn´t everyone eat a healthy diet, not smoke, exercise 150 minutes a week, use condoms, and get enough sleep? Maybe we are not asking or answering all the questions there either.
My solution-- only to my own surplus of questions and wondering-- is to write. This is a non-official, not-scientific, not-school related way of sharing my learning process with the 2 people who might ever stumble upon it.
Oh, and eventually I will go back to Peru and get some cute kid pictures again.
