I'm about to be down mainly beboping between Lima and Santiago for a while starting in November.

Going to head down to Torres del Paine and see as much of Magallanes/Antartic region as I can, other than that probably trying to hit Machu Piccu when I get back into Peru.

If you're around these areas or going to be around, post here or send me a message ^_^

so there's a guy in town with a camper posted up next to one of the plazas spreading information on the medicinal and nutritional effects of the coca leaf

if you don't know the cocaine production process takes much more ugly artificial hooha than this wonderful plant

caramel chew products for elevation adjustment, definitely a factor down here.

also coca based breads and cakes...incredible taste...it's almost like eating a big glob of hemp butter too....just makes me feel right

well i will attach some photos when the internet is being more kind to me
