Back in the country.

Mischa Levit

It feels like it was last week. I packed my things, emptied my room, signed the last flyers and ate my last dinner in our Kakao Community near Würzburg.Reuniting with Anka in Colombia and traveling together to Ecuador, Guatemala and who knows where else was on the agenda. Kakao here, Kakao there and maybe a little vacation over there. WUSCHHH! We are back in Germany. I rub my eyes as if it had been an intense yet pleasantly warm dream. And what exactly makes a dream a dream and reality a reality? Now I'm sitting at the same desk, doing the same work. I've gotten...

Our time with the Arhuacos.

Mischa Levit

About 5 years ago, during my first stay in Colombia, we hiked through a national park, the Parque Tayrona. It is known for its incredible biodiversity and the natural spectacle that results when wild mountain jungle flows directly into the Caribbean Sea. Even then, on our hike through the national park, we encountered tribal people dressed in white. Sometimes accompanied by a donkey or a mule, mostly with a cheek full of coca. At that time, I felt extremely foreign to this culture, which was so different, and at the same time so fascinated by it.

Sometimes I imagine I'm an iceberg.

 

Not only because icebergs are incredibly cool. Above all, namely, I connect with the quality that this "small" outstanding tip, visible above the surface of the water, is held by a much much larger mass, a force many times larger than can be seen from the outside.

Together you are less alone

Mischa Levit

Once upon a time, there was a Kakao Mischa who wanted to have adventures and was sure there was fancy stuff out there. Even though times were rough, he wandered around and wanted to know: What does he do with himself, so cunning?Selling Kakao, that sounds fine! Could that be his destiny now? Or what else is he doing here? It's probably too late for the piano. His patience is just enough to sing along with "lalalal". With more and more Kakao in the trunk and worrying foam in front of his mouth, he was seen rushing. Just in time...
