Before relocating to Sydney Australia my fiance and I did a 3 week trip through South America. It was incredible. The most memorable part of the trip was at the end visiting Cusco and Machu Picchu. Seeing Machu Picchu in person is amazing. Visting Cusco around christmas time there was a big market in the main square. Here I saw for the first time the Duende. Duende are goblin like mythological creatures that were meant to look after the miners. We were on our way to starting a new business and after talking with the locals picked out our very own Duende to bring us good luck and watch over the happiness and success of our new start. He has done just that and now, just over a year later our business is booming! He watches over our work space and reminds us every day of the magic that south america holds.
