Where I stayed
Stopped off in Piura the night before making headway to Huancabamba where the Shamans live. I had soup today......
¨Waitress, Waitress there is a claw in my soup¨,
¨Yes, this is a restaurant not a joke, that is your lunch!¨
I sat there laughing to myself she must have thought I was a mad man!
There is one failing in any Shaman and that is the affinity with fibbing, and cactus and drink.
He was a funny little chubby guy with a round face. Telling me I would get special treatment for extra, which in the end I did not pay, I did not get the speciality. With perfume he spat on us and made me throw talc all over myself (I think that's what the extra treatment was for). Then finishing the long haul in the cubical with 6 Gringos and 5 locals, all of which got none of the attention we did, which boosts my scepticism, were carted off to the Black Lake for cleansing!!!!
