Im SRF-Tagesgespräch haben wir heute mit David Karasek (Moderator, bis vor kurzem noch Südamerika-Korrespondent!) über die Krise #Peru geprochen. Schnelle Neuwahlen sind keine Lösung, aber ohne geht es nicht. Danke für die Einladung! @srfnews @weltreporter

#Peru faces ungovernability. President Boluarte probably thought she could stifle protests with violence. New elections are necessary, but would they end the enduring crisis? Unlikely if the same political parties remain in power. @weltreporter

What a sad headline: "The first environmentalists murdered in 2023". But, so true. More than 1700 environmentalists have been murdered in the last 10 years, according to Global Witness. 68% were from Latin America. @weltreporter

2) Researchers are still looking for the reasons. We know: They grow what they eat. Exercise a lot. Go to bed early. Drink water with calcium and magnesium. Religiosity gives a sense of purpose. Family environment, many friends. Food: rice + beans, almost veggie, little sugar...

Even if you don't understand German: The pictures of these (over) 100 year olds on the #Nicoya Peninsula in #CostaRica will inspire you. Ramiro is still training young horses. Dora bakes, sweeps the yard. Benerando plants corn and beans. #10vor10 @srfnews
