I went to Cumbaza on the 4th of Jan, 2015, and checked into a natural healing ayahuasca centre called Urqu Chaqi for 11 days. Below are some of the images i captured during my time there.
Tina fixing the gaping holes in my mosquito net.
Huacamaillo Waterfalls. My favourite shower.
The living quarters.
The bathroom. With the red sand flush. Didn’t use it for two days, after that it was my favourite potty.
The malokha, or temple.
Shaman’s corner. That dark red liquid pretty much changed my life.
Inside the octagon.
Business class catering. Boiled quinoa, boiled carrots and beet, boiled egg (on luxury days), and boiled lentils. 3 times a day. 11 days. No salt. No nothing.
Alberto, the magic man.
Daniel’s farewell. With Panchito.
The weirdest insect i have ever seen…
…and a bee the size of my fist.
Do you see it? The humming-bird?
Sunset in the hills.
But the rain was even more beautiful.
Lodi, our cook. Very shy.
