Peru was an incredible experience but I was not prepared for the cold temperatures staying at 12,500 ft elevation in Cusco. The history and ruins are incredible and the local quechua people are lovely. As I had hoped, I was able to speak with quite a number of people who had experienced either significant help or total healings with the use of some of the local botanicals and I was able to work with 2 local healers (curanderos) during my stay. It has given me a greater appreciation for the divergent ways each culture has dealt with disease in a way that you just can’t appreciate from reading a book about it. I will have more thoughts to share in the future.
