I have been interested (or shall we say obsessed?) with the Andes Survivors' story for half of my life. I was lucky enough to find out about an expedition to the actual crash site with Eduardo Strauch a couple of years ago. I went, had the most amazing time (there are not words to express what it meant to me) and have gone back again one more time since. I have since spent time with Eduardo and his family and have met 11 out of the 16 survivors through my friendship with Eduardo. I am so blessed to have gotten to know him and to have him in my life. His/their story is such a powerful one and has influenced my life in more ways than I could ever describe. But I'm sure that's true for anyone who is/was a member of this community.
Sorry to see that it is not really an active community, as I would love to hear other people's stories about what the Andes Survivors have meant to them.
