Hello and welcome! I am very jealous that you live in Peru, I hope to explore there some time. I hear there are still many indigenous people in the forests, particularly those who use ayahuasca (los ayahuasqueros).

Try using Google's translator (http://translate.google.com/) if you're having difficult typing in English.

He has chaliponga. Yes the legendary plant. :shock:
I ordered some seeds from him two weeks ago. I expect them to arrive next week or the following week.

Saludos desde la soleada California del Sur para el corazón de la Madre Tierra! :D :D :D Por favor, toque muchas plantas raras y exóticas en su hábitat natural para mí, porque me temo que nunca será capaz de hacerlo yo mismo! :cry:

Lo siento no hablo español, :oops: pero me puede operar un programa traductor! :lol:

yeah , yeah , it's on its way!

bits and pieces........

If you reached Iquitos as foreigner, it is imposible not have heard of ayahuasca-pressuming that until then you have not had any clue what so ever of its existance. Iquitos is considered ayahuasca capital. They organize international congresses here , where shamans and scientists take part, sometimes the same peoples having both functions. Coffee shops, hotels, and pubs are full of foreigners that came for only one thing: ayahuasca. They are not interested in the jungle nor the amazon. Their aim is ayahuasca and the spirituality behind her veil. Their goal is an endeavour in the afterlife.

Some few hit the bull eye and say: i am here to stay , blocked in the project. Others miss and flee(leave) disappointed. The ayahuasca issue is that apart from the bufo toad where the recipe is practically unchanged and you can measure the results depending the quantity and the quality of the 'poison', on ayahuasca it does not work like that , it is different everywhere , depending the person you are talking with -and Iquitos is full of experts on the subject- there are three, five, seven, or twelve types of ayahuasca brew. But this is not the end of it. Banisteriopsis caapi or the vine of the souls is only one of the two main ingredients, suplemented all the time by tens of plants depending on the skilfulness, mastery, or the curiosity lol of the SIC(shaman in charge).
Ok, i am tired , i am gonna sip some special brew taught by the master shaman ( hope you do not mind for not revealing his name for the moment) to knock me over for a bit , and i ll get back as soon as i am sober.

No question about , scientificaly speaking, the ayahuasca study is way back before the 'psy toad' study - and even the latter does not do(the study did not reach any better) too good. lol
And this is not all, there are dozen of theories 'that show' that different reactions to ayahuasca are explained by 'the level of spiritual development', the health condition, by the thoughts and the reasons that lead you to hit the stage(to drink ayahuasca),... One thing is certain, you will puke and probably diarrhea will hit you like a fairy train. Many , please excuse my words, they pee during the ceremony and 'it is not pee'. You must admit, that wishing(willing) to experiment ayahuasca panoplied(armed) with these infos it takes a certain doze of recklessness. Yeah, lol , that was the one i owned, or at least that was what i thought.

On Thom tavern, the whole foreigners world from Iquitos spins around Thom tavern, having a chat with my buddy Ben about ayahuasca, we were waylaid by two americanos who heard me speaking english to Rodd and the gringo shaman. They were mother and son. The son around 27-30 years old, the typical image of a young american- tall, blonde, wide shoulders (back), football player type, but well behaved[raised] ( we were about to write each other on e-mail, after my return from States).The mother around 50, athletic type, tanned, slim, and above all, open minded. A new age type from vintage age, raised in the spirit of the 68 th. They only wanted to keep in touch after we were about to experiment ayahuasca together. On the first place, they came to Iquitos for ayahuasca, -to see how ayahuasca can offer them the gate to the other world promised (in vain until then) by the whole constelation of new ages people. It was crystal clear that both ( but above all , the mother) were not prepared to quit. Well understood, they spent time and money(in the mother's case-a lifetime[whole life] propably) betting on an idea. And, at least honest, they were not prepared to be defeated.
They were disapponted, ''regarding vomiting, we threw up both'', but my mother went to toilet for the big job(shat) only once. (We have all the time in the world, she nodded confirming the story). ''Regarding myself, i was ill 24 hours afterwards. I think i vomited and shat all my guts. But apart from this, none experimented something special. I have to admit, it was a different shaman though. Maybe yours is better.'' Maybe.

I looked at Ben, Ben did the same, ''What did we get into- free will !? Turning back was no more. We thought that in all this bad deal there was a glimpse of goodness: we chose
the 'free' shaman --you had to give only if you wanted to, and how much you heart would let you. We promised them that we'll let them know how our experience emerged, and we took for granted their advise : eat less today!. Regarding the surroundings, it seemed a good advise to follow. Maybe , the only one. That is what we did. We only ate 2 sandwiches and walked the town, until , at around 4 p.m. we met Rodd.
We asked Roy to let us come earlier (the ceremony was about to begin at around 7 p.m.) for observing how ayahuasca was made. He agreed.

Rodd had to lead us to Roy -curandero-ayahuasquero, as it was written on his contact card. He did not intend to take part to ceremony and nor to wait for us. After the ceremony i understood him perfectly. I was not going to try it for the second time. Once was more than enough.
Roy lived auside Iquitos, so that we had to change two cabs, (outside Iquitos they need a special license, the town is still under the military law) til we reached 'the dedicated place'-practicaly a jungle place the size of 3 football pitches all together. Roy welcomed us. After changing plesantries, Rodd was about to leave. Hold on, who is gonna get us back to hotel? Kindly, the gringo shaman said that after the ceremony we can sleep at his place 'for recovery'. As followed, we left early in the next morning.
