Peru or Bust, one couple's journey to represent USA abroad and aid in ways small and large.

If you are bored with this site, it's not my fault.

If Vilcabamba is supposed to be in the valley of longevity, why are the producing a special type of tabacco to smoke..

It’s called Chamico and it’s supposedly mostly grown around Vilcabamba.. tastes pretty bland and I wonder if it’s more of a gimmick for tourists passing through..  Then again, it might be partially this Jimson weed plant which is apparently pretty hallucinogenic and toxic (mostly when eaten or drank as tea).  The shop owners say it’s not the case, rather the internet says it might be more of this Long Spined Thorn Apple (y en Espanol), which appears more fatal then just toxic.  Anyway you look at it, it’s best to avoid.
