In San Juan de Yanác, a calm and beautiful town, my mother, Rosario Ravines was born and lived. She along her 90 years of life practiced "The Miracle of Sharing" helping children and poor old men without looking for recompense some. She told me: son, ..doesn't give the one that has, but the one that wants..
San Juan is a rural community, located in the Department of Cajamarca, 800 kms. to the north of Lima, capital city of Peru. It is located 2200 m. on the sea level. Its climate is healthy, its fresh air and its splendid sun.
People are kind but poor. To 40 minutes from San Juan is Cajamarca city, famous for its beauty and rich historical past. There, still they are "the bathrooms of the Inca" San Juan of Yanac is famous for its cheeses wrapped in "tuyos"and for its avocados and cherimoyas.
