"Her father instilled in her a respect for Mother Earth — Pachamama — and a passion for agriculture. She would later attend university in Lima and then visited the department of Junín, where she was introduced to maca, which only grows in the central Andean region, at an altitude of more than 4,000 meters."

Some random quick Mastodon tips which new people may find useful:

-You don't need link shorteners on Mastodon because all links count for 23 characters of your limit, no matter how long they really are.

-Make sure you include https:// at the start of website addresses so they will turn into clickable links.

-If you're using website Mastodon, you can switch to dark or light mode by going to ⚙️ Preferences > Site Theme > Mastodon Dark (or Mastodon Light). Some servers have even more colour options 🎨

-On the official app you can go to ⚙️ Settings and select Light or Dark there.

-You can report rule-breaking toots by clicking "..." on the toot and selecting Report. This goes to your server admin, and optionally anonymously to the rule-breaker's server admin too.

Currently reading this for research.

It's a compelling nonfiction account of genocidal atrocities committed during the rubber boom in Peru. Highly recommend. It's definitely something that should be more widely known. I lived in the Ecuadorian Amazon for over 7 years and didn't know how bad it was before I read this.

QOTD: Tell me something that more people should be aware of.

One of the exciting things at a World Expo is the huge diversity of art, crafts, and artifacts that participating nations bring along to share with the world. Here's a selection of items that were on display in national pavilions...

1. #Bosnia-Herzegovina (a beautiful, intricate metalwork piece)
2. #Paraguay (sand and seed painting by Koki Ruiz)
3. #France (an Enlightenment-era encyclopaedia)
4. #Peru (from a temporary exhibition of the ornaments of the Lord of Sipan)
5. #Baden-Wurttemberg (Bauhaus dance costumes)

Hello. Hope someone sees this.
I can't log into my account from any device. It says wrong credentials but it's definitely the right email address and I'm 90% certain of the password. I even tried recovering password just in case but never got the reset email.
It's been over a week now.
Cheers

Lets stop tagging nurses as selfless and provide them necessary mental, financial support, rotational work basis, employment benefits. They are also humans like us. #InternationalNursesDay #InternationalNursesDay2021 #NursesDay
