Our Story


We are a small company born from Peruvian and American roots.  We are teachers, artists, foodies, explorers, and curious about the world that we inhabit.  We have traveled and lived in places across the globe, from South America to East Asia and beyond.

The mementos we have collected along the way have become our most treasured possessions; they are a daily reminder of what we have learned, and an inspiration for further explorations. Chakrana is our way of sharing the artistry and rich cultural history we have discovered during our journeys.

  1. I visited Lima and Cusco a few years ago and I just loved it! Especially the food, alpacas and llamas. I love your recipes and look forward to reading more.


    • Thank you Anne that’s nice of you, is awesome you were in Peru, I’m actually working in a post about Alpacas but local ones (in Kansas) so i’ll be ready in a couple of weeks, again thanks for your words 🙂

    • I do sometimes, I guess in a way that’s why I have this blog, you know how is like to live in another country too right. You miss basic things like food, friends and family, but is a good thing too because makes you appreciate better what you knew before. Thank you for stopping by 🙂

      • Absolutely. I like your blog. What I wish is that I liked to cook more… Haha! Yes, it’s funny. I am homesick for many places. I am much more grateful now for the comfortable lifestyle that I have in the States–no humidity, air-conditioning, screens to keep the mosquitoes out, etc.–but I’ve come to see that these things don’t bring me happiness. Happiness is about so much more than that. Anyway. Again, great blog! Happy to connect. 🙂
