    ... we sit through the instructions from a flight attendant. Movies and rock concerts do better but it is unlikely even with all their sophisticated paraphernalia that they compare to effects of the priests of the old cultures of Peru. And consider the emotions being evoked today. Ours for the most part are the most craven possible. Not that I am complaining and advocating a return to the good old days of hierarchy and serfdom.

    My time in Lima has drawn to a close much too soon. It would take weeks to become properly acquainted with such a vast city and, for my part, I was truly overwhelmed in terms of things to observe here. Certainly a city to watch in future what with its booming population, sprawling shanty towns and indomitable aspirations. It makes me sad that a lot of people on the South American circuit don't bother with Lima at all, merely stopping over here for the night on their way to ...

    ... Leesh isn't overly phased either, but raw fish cooked in lime juice etc never really appealed to my taste buds.

Banana moment: not today ...

    ... to experience.The average package involving Lima to Machu Picchu begins in the capital where you will most likely take a day or two for a city tour and maybe even a culinary tour, let’s not forget Peru has been on the rise when it comes to its food. Up next will be a flight taking you to the highland city of Cusco. It is very possible you will need a day to get used to the high altitude of the city. Being ...

    I recall a lecture by [Joseph] Campbell in the late Sixties when he told a story of North American shamanic initiation. Rasmussen, the Danish-­Eskimo explorer and ethnologist, in the course of his expeditions through the arctic regions of the North American continent, had conversations with many old shamans. One of them told the story of his own initiation as a young boy. He said that he was taken by an older shaman out on a sled over ice, and placed in a small igloo just big ...
