Born and bred in the beautiful Andes mountains, Egidio works the land every day with no more than his bare hands. Isolated for periods of up to three months due to the harsh weather conditions, he is perfectly adapted to survive. High mountains, deep rivers and lack of roads isolate him, making human contact a rare occasion. Egidio lives out of his cattle, chicken and sometimes even has to hunt wild boar, pumas or deer for a meal. A heartwarming man of few words, Egidio was born to live this way. He is one of a kind.
